Music Monday- Paul Whiteman's Orchestra

This charming song is Last Night on the Back Porch by Paul Whiteman's Orchestra. This was recorded in 1923 and is accompanied by equally charming pictures of couples on porches.

This reminds me of a time when air conditioners, computers and televisions did not exist and people enjoyed each other and the out doors on their porches.  These porches were the center of social existence during the hot summer days.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
