"See no. 23. Another picture full of sentiment is Percy Moran's 'An Old Time Melody.' An attractive young woman in the costume of the early part of the century sits at a harpsichord in front of a window. The picture is a symphony, and the white gown of the girl, the white curtains at the window, and the tea-roses on the harpsichord, make a charming effect in the soft light that shines through the window. - Louisville Courier-Journal."
