Sight-Reading Music Classes Ticket (1894)

This amazing little item has been saved for over 100 years -- why I'm not sure, if only to demonstrate the role of music in my family's history for many years. This belonged to my great grandmother on my father's-mother's side, and dates from 1894. I'm not sure where this comes from, but my data suggests Missouri. If you are not sure what exactly this is, it's a punch card for music lessons, specifically in the skill of sight reading (or playing music on first reading), and by the looks of it, she took eight lessons. I hope they helped!
