“Hello Central! Give Me No Man's Land” Sheet Music

Description (Brief)
This sheet music is for the song “Hello Central! Give Me No Man's Land.” The song’s lyrics were written by Sam Lewis and Joe Young, and the music was composed by Jean Schwartz. The sheet music was published by Waterson, Berlin, and Snyder Co. in 1918. The song was introduced by Al Jolson in the show “Sinbad.” The cover features a photograph of Jolson over a black and red illustration of a World War One era No Man’s Land between enemy lines, signed by Barbelle. There is a silhouette image of a young child on the telephone, asking the central operator to be connected to No Man’s Land so the child can talk to its father.
