Parlor Musicale: 1905

Priceless expression

The old dear looks as if she's had a couple of belts before settling in for the photograph.

Composer of "Roosevelt's Grand March" was a musician and politician from Ohio.

While not the same tune, here is a sample of his work from Youtube, played on a period instrument.
