Song in Squantum

Today we have a colour song sheet cover from 1912.


Following on from yesterday’s Magnificent Men post, here we have another, in this case real period piece, featuring pre-Great War music, aircraft and art. There’s something rather appealing about the slightly naive figure drawing, and the vague aircraft shapes.

But how many airshows can claim their own song written especially for them? Most of them today rely on old stages, including ‘Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines’. I wonder if ‘Take me down to Squantum, I want to see them fly’ could compete?
