Getting Ready for the Tunbridge World’s Fair

  • Piano tuner Nancy Taube, of Chelsea, worked on hammers that were sticking due to humidity in the entertainment tent at the Tunbridge Fairgrounds while her border collie Billie waited for her to throw a ball in Tunbridge, Vt., Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2018. The instrument resides for most of the year in an un-heated barn on the grounds and is taken out and maintained only at fair time to be played for the Ed Larkin Contra Dancers and by some other performers.
