Sheet Music - Large Format
Popular Tin Pan Alley song
Vintage from the 1900s
The song relates a young girl wishing to use the telephone ("Hello Central" refers to the operator) to call her dead mother. It was inspired by a newspaper story relating the attempt of the seven-year-old daughter of a widower to make such a call. Postcards were printed after the song's publication with the "kind permission" of Harris showing young girls using the telephone to call their dead mothers. It was first recorded by Byron G. Harlan and released in July 1901.
