South Australian music and song in wartime
Selected images of sheet music covers from the collections of the State Library of South Australia.

Sheet music, as an historic record, is able to tell us a lot. Popular genres in a particular era can illustrate the concerns of the people of the time, for example the large number of patriotic songs published during World War One.
