I am so drawn to everything about the 1920's and 1930's - the artwork, fashions, etc., and I have found such wonderful examples of what came out of that time.  I was born at almost the end of the Roaring Twenties (1928) and many of the old pictures of my family and that of my late husband are from that time.  My childhood was in the 1930's - I finished 8th grade in 1942.  Yes, I am old!!  So, along with other things, I will do posts from Pinterest as part of Pieces of the Past.

Today, I post this piece of sheet music for "When the Moon Comes Over the Mountain" which was sung and was kind of a theme song for a woman named Kate Smith.  I can remember hearing her on the radio and I also think she might have sung in a movie or two.  Her other big hit was "God Bless America".
 Here is Kate and if you wish to here her sing the song for the first time, click on the arrow.  Enjoy a big Piece of the Past.

  1. This really brings back memories. We used to listen to her on the radio. I think she had a weekly show. What a great voice she had!
    Thanks for the entry about the sheet music and the recording!
    I didn't know the song was written for her by Irving Berlin.
