Dear Old Dublin Town
Imagine Dublin in 1920, a village with only several hundred residents. Everyone knew everyone else, and apparently everyone knew what one another was doing! "Dear Old Dublin Town" is a ballad written and performed by former Washington Township High School (before the school was renamed Dublin High School) graduate Samuel Davis. The ballad was performed as part of a minstrel show on March 12, 1920, which "…kept the audience constantly entertained and easily drove dull cares away." Readers will enjoy how this young man pokes fun at the barber, the blacksmith, the grocer and other businessmen of the time in the village!
