Friedrich von Kaulbach

Sheet music in its heyday was often published with beautiful covers.  This one is for a classic Edwardian pop song called I’ve Got a Pain in My Sawdust, which, I gotta admit, is more than a little creepy, especially when sung by the voice of Betty Boop–-it’s about a doll that requires urgent medical attention. Weird, huh? But anyway, if you’re a regular follower of this blog, you should recognize this one, even though the colors are muted here.
