Description (Brief)
This sheet music is for the song “Everybody's Doin' It Now” which was written and composed by Irving Berlin and published by the Ted Snyder Company in 1911. The cover features an illustration of a man and woman dancing closely together, as well as a circular inset photograph of the Manson Twins on the lower left. The song is advertised “as sung by Lydia Barry at the Winter Garden in New York.” This song was written by Berlin to take advantage of the dance craze sweeping the country at the time.
