Shorpy Saturday – Words and Music: 1904

By Jeffrey Buck

Belt out a tune this weekend, maybe the Star Spangled Banner in honor of our Olympians. No sheet music required for that one!

Take a look at the photograph entitled “Words and Music: 1904“:


Detroit circa 1904. “General offices, Whitney-Warner Publishing Co.” Interior of the sheet-music business seen here yesterday. Among the tunes on display: “Hiawatha Song,” “Bedelia” and the “Soko March” Two-Step.
