I have access to a hoard of old sheet music, and since I don’t play anything anymore, I’m using it for other purposes. I’m finding the covers a nice resource for looking at women’s hair, hats, makeup and clothes. They’re great examples of designs of the times – some of these are so evocative of the year(s) they were printed.
So I’ve listed a bunch of the oldest ones below. I don’t know all their dates. The earliest dated one is 1908, and they go up to about 1920. If I knew the date I added it below – I’ll add the rest at a later point. I’ll also add all the ones from about 1920-1930 in a new post. Those are pretty neat, too.
Okay, I’m not going to write a lot about them, here they are!
