In 1920 prominent music publisher Allan & Co. employed Jack O’Hagan as a 'professional manager' or 'song plugger', with the task of ensuring that the company's songs were heard in theatres and dance halls.

In this letter dated 10 March 1924, O'Hagan draws the reader’s attention to his newest song, 'Down By the Garden Gate'. Shortly after this, O’Hagan was engaged by the Auditorium to perform the hit.
