Otto Printing Company, based in Newport, Kentucky, printed the songbook, SINGING ALONG. 

The front cover features a caricature of a 1920s gentlemen twirling a cane, dressed in a vested suit and wearing a black bowler hat. Stamped on both the front and back is the red logo of a local Owl's Club. Below the caricature is the song, "This Must Be the Place."

This vintage piece of ephemera, likely from the 1930s, contains 76 drinking songs, most of which were popular in the 1920s. Evidence suggests the book ties back to the Owl's Club at 5903 Vine Street in Elmwood Place, near Cincinnati.

Rumor has it the establishment offered gambling in the form of slot machines.

The songbook includes oldies such as "Bill Bailey," "Ma, He's Making Eyes at Me,"  "Paper Doll," "My Blue Heaven," "Wait Till the Sun Shines, Nellie," and "Let Me Call You Sweetheart."

Though brown-tinged and with bent corners, the songbook remains in great condition.
