Description (Brief)
This sheet music is entitled “Old Favorite Songs” and is a piece of music that was given away “with compliments of the Bay State Milling Company” who made hard spring wheat and rye flours in Wiona, Minnesota. The cover features an image of a woman playing songs at her piano while gazing out the window. Because of its popularity at the time, sheet music was often given away by retailers as advertising.

I have a copy of this booklet and always wondered when it was published - I can't find a date on it anywhere. I think it's before 1910. Thanks.
