Ariston Disc 4215 "Horse Shoe Galop"
By Alan Best

[ Ref. 

I believe Ariston catalogue No. 4215, "The Horse Shoe Galop", was the
one composed by Charles Roylance for my great-grandfather Charles Best
in 1880 or so.  Roylance's music shop was opposite the Horse Shoe on
Tottenham Court Road, London.  I have a MIDI file of the tune if you
are interested in hearing it.

Best wishes,
Alan Best
