Yes, music takes you places, and this was true 100 years ago too, when sheet music was the most widespread form of distributing popular music. And in the age of the Wright brothers, when powered flight started to gain ground, aviation became a significant theme in popular music. The following collection proves this very well.
It is amazing and weird at the same time to see how the vision of aviation technology and early 20th century popular music were fitted together in these sheet music covers depicting travellers–both men and women–aboard all kind of aircraft–no matter lighter or heavier than air–in flight, even in outer space.
My brain is definitely gone soft, I spent way too long trying to figure out how long ago 30 hundred years was. Let along why a 30 hundred year old sheet music cover was celebrating flight. I mean the first recorded balloon flight was only 2.3 hundred years ago.
