This march was composed for the annual Boston Food Fair in 1908 and dedicated to the Boston Retail Grocers' Association. The Sousa Band was a primary attraction for several seasons at these fairs. It is said that the memory of a pretty girl Sousa had seen at a previous fair inspired this composition, which is more melodic and less military in style than most of his marches. --James Huff 14:04, May 29, 2007 (EDT) (from the program notes of The Claremont Winds, submitted with permission)
