These three images are of a musical score arranged and published by Ordine H. Toliver, who, as reported in last week's photo blog, was one of Detroit's most gifted composers in the first half of the twentieth century.  The images show the cover, interior and back cover of Mr. Toliver's arrangement of the spiritual, "Lay This Body Down."
