“Give me Pablo Neruda, picnic beneath a full moon & iridescent stars, black olives, cherries, dark things, canoe on a river…that’s romance.”

This charming vintage bride comes from The Old Design Shop and is the cover of a 1915 Easter edition of the American periodical, Pictorial Review.  The Great War (WWI) was being waged in Europe at the time and the United States, many of whose citizens were firmly on the side of neutrality, had yet to join.  American feelings about the war were encapsulated by the popular song, also from 1915, I Didn’t Raise My Boy To Be A Soldier, with lyrics by Alfred Bryan, music by Al Piantadosi and sung by Ed Morton. This sheet music cover comes from Wikipedia.


Take care and keep laughing!
