    There was an old mid-1700s song from London titled "Sally In Our Alley" which spread
    across the pond to become a Popular Stage Show here with sheet music from that with the same title, then another song about 1920 with a beautiful color cover sheet music, and another play and more sheet music all bearing the same title.!!
    Back when the postcard was in full swing with silly comics and inventive titles what showed up was a very lot of postcards with sheet music titles. I have been collecting them so can show more, but this is a favorite because of the early "Bowling Alley" reference and Sally giving the ball her all while a fellow look amused. This reminds me when women began doing things first associated with men, it was called a "craze"--Roller Skating Craze" "Smoking Craze etc"and I assume this idea was from the new fad--Bowling Craze for women. Cute how that tied the bowler into the very old song!

      That's a great one!! Those folks, back then, probably had no idea that what they called a "Craze" would still be going strong today.

      Thanks jscott0363---I an the biggest fan of Uncle Wiggley and other rabbit collectibles and I see you also love them.
    3. jscott0363 jscott0363, 4 years ago
      Yep, I am a huge fan of anything Uncle Wiggily Longears. I have all of the books, an Uncle Wiggily board game from the early 1900's and even a couple of Uncle Wiggily Longears lamps. Glad to see there are others that share the same enthusiasm as I do!!

      Not really a Bowling Alley, just a Alley Way, in a neighborhood! I was lookin for Sally to be bowling a 300! :^)

      Ahhh Thanks billretired. Yes it was a poem (the lyrics) back in the early 1700s!! I also read 2 old movies were made "Sally In Our Alley"" which was my mothers name--Not her given name==That was Sylvia which she didn't like so took on Sally From Sweden not the Alley. The farm..)I;ll bet that Sally became a really popular name back when. Thanks for the link to the poem
      Mani I cannot stand light in my eyes, degenerative disease in both!
      Uggh! and my typing is sinful! I hope yout problem is fixable! Lois
      Sorry.____________________________________________

      racer4four === I had 25 years as editor of A Music Collectors publication and all that time I didn't know there was a postcard-sheet music connection or I would have done articles on it. Amazing that the song titles which everyone was playing on their pianos became part of the jargon of the day, heard in greetings, sayings ,slogons, etc. So I will be put music-postcard connectionds on here. Oh boy! There are many! FUN for me! Whoopie!
