Ad Gives Nod to Gilbert and Sullivan

| 4/3/2018 8:07:00 AM



The music for the “Jolly Thresherman” (Farm Collector, January 2018) may have been from an Aultman & Taylor ad, but the tune is from the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, “H.M.S. Pinafore.”

When I asked my daughter, Christina, who is the music expert in our family, to play it for me, she immediately identified it as “Sweet Little Buttercup.” At least Aultman & Taylor gave Arthur Sullivan credit for the music.
