Music sheets from the Victorian period contain references to virtually every aspect of Victorian life including fashion, royalty, politics, the military and especially work. The workplace often featured in songs but there were distinct regional differences. These were often idealised variations, with industrial areas like Birmingham appearing in songs such as this one, and farmers and labourers appearing in songs about the West Country. The gallop was the simplest dance, all couples were expected to do was dash across the room with only the occasional dance step along the way.
