Today I wish to share with you some musical sheets I purchased at a auction here in town many years ago. A gift shop was closing down and auctioned all there goods. Not many people went to the auction I think mainly because the owners had such high prices on some of there goods in the shop. A girlfriend and I were just going for a look,several hours later(we left at nine and came back about 5.00pm) we came back with a couple of boxes full of all sorts of goodies. The good thing about an auction is you may be the only bidder. The auctioneer really had his work cut out for him on this day.
Some of the sheets date back to the 1930's. They have the Name Aeolian Club Choir on them. There was also a Junior Aeolian Club Choir. One interesting sheet is called "Australia! O Thou Favoured Isle! with words by CJ Dennis and they called it A National Anthem.
Roses are freshly picked from the gardens at Kainga this morning.
