Sheet music

Dean Ockert of Huntsville, Ala., had an excellent display of sheet music in Special Collections, with an emphasis on wartime popular music. The theme of this year's convention was "A Salute to the Military," so it was perfect.

I especially loved this photo montage of welcome home hugs and kisses. The song "It's been a long, long time," automatically came to mind.


  1. Sheet music was so beautiful and often so romantic. Is sheet music still produced at all today?

  2. I think so, but it's hard to imagine the illustrations are as lovely as those on the vintage ones.
