|The Obelisk Polka|
In an age when domestic music making was one of the most widespread of bourgeois pastimes, the obelisk served as an inspiration for countless bits of sheet music: Mrs. Lou Fitts composed an Obelisk Waltz. There was a Grand Obelisk March and an Obelisk Polka; Florence Hooper Baker dedicated her Obelisk March to Commander Gorringe.
