Subject: RE: Lyr Req: When the Old Man Came Home Sober
I was puzzled by the "inter war period" reference, but the page gave no dates for reference.
At the page with the ambiguous "inter war period" notation, there's a return to the Index for the site that might be of interest for searchers for other topics. There appears to be quite a lot of good stuff on the site, although so far as I've found nothing more about this song or composer.
Possibly worth a bookmark for those who might want to search other similar things(?)
The "garlands" in which information is presented are rather conversational and anectdotal, and while they seem to contain lots of information, it's sometimes difficult to tell whether someone is being cited as a composer or just as a performer of a piece, along with a few other ambiguities and conflicting citations. The search function at the site is also rather less effective than one might expect.
There seem to have been quite a lot of "postwarish" titles cited for the 1870s, but I can't place a war of note that would have been the beginning for an "inter war period."(?) I suppose one might write it off to "they were always fighting with someone."
