Ragtime Music Denounced at Convention

Here's an old article on ragtime music from The Sunday Telegraph dated June 2, 1901. Notice the irony of the caption how "long haired individuals" says the music is "rot trash" and "distinctively vulgar"?  Pretty much the same reaction when Rock -n- Roll came onto the scene with The Beatles, Elvis and others.
