Hearts And Flowers By Fred W. Hager Zon-o-phone Record Circa 1900

It is the very early morning of February 7, 2015.  Next week is Valentines Day and in honor of the upcoming holiday, I have for you "Hearts And Flowers" in the form of an instrumental (violin and piano).    This record was pressed on the Zon-o-phone (Zonophone) label (Catalog number: G9466).  It dates somewhere between 1899 and 1903.  The song is "Hearts And Flowers" credited to Fred W. Hager.  The song will be played on a Victor Victrola Model #4 (VV-IV) from 1915.

I thought I would add some hearts and flowers to the video:
