But We Already Knew That!

Illustration: Young woman in bed dreaming of an accordion player.

Xophylia has posted a set of great illustrations from an old Palmer-Hughes Accordion Course book proving that even back then, accordions were chick magnets.

(You may want to read the rest of the LiveJournal accordions community — lots of good info and discussion on all things accordion.)

I know those illustrations (and the books) well. I think the illustrations looked adorably dated, even when they were first published.

Oh, these illustrations are just lovely. I just adore that style.

And on another note, I have always wanted to play the accordian. My mom used to play it, and in her day, she was pretty darn hot.

This just in: Tiger attacks can make you unable to play accordian. So stay away from that park.
