The River of Failure

This is an editorial cartoon published in The Etude in October 1913, then reprinted as an ad for Chrysalis Records that most likely appeared in a record trade rag like Cashbox. The caption of the ad reads, "This allegorical drawing is adapted to musical education from an original drawing issued by The National Cash Register Company to point the road to business success." The framed clipping hangs next to the piano in my family's den.
