One of the numerous musical short subjects that the movie studios churned out, this one purports to offer you a sampling of songs from the Gay 90s and the Mauve Decade -- the latter being the first decade of the 20th Century. First they show you someone singing the song in the style of a Vaudeville performer of the era, then they offer you the words on the screen for a sing-along. The titles are "While Strolling the the Park One Day", "The Bowery", "After the Ball", "In My Merry Oldsmobile" and "Put on Your Old Grey Bonnet." Except for the first, all you get is the chorus.

Such featurettes were common to movie theaters. Indeed, photographs of early movie theaters advertise sheet music and performances; and Max Fleischer began his famous 'Follow the Bouncing Ball' series of cartoon sing-alongs in 1926
