Sheet Music
From Canada's Past


Sheet music is often prized as much for its visually striking covers as for its musical content. This artwork - sometimes lovely, sometimes curious - presents rich and revealing images of Canadian life, attitudes and priorities from years gone by: historic events, public figures, city and country life, fads and fashions, work and leisure pursuits. We hope you enjoy these examples from the collection of Library and Archives Canada. Click on the topics below to see additional covers.
