    We are familiar with band music and songs from the period, but would this video be typical of the sound of a city street?

    This not a bad recording, it is good for the time. We are used to something else though. The sounds of our streets are different. It is good we do not have smellorama. The noises and music of the streets are not enough. The smells would put it over the top.

    That will be a studio recording, so later than the Civil War. But the instrument is typical of the type in use during the period. There were also Dutch and German variations, so some of those would most likely have been in use on American streets.
