Saw this old Knabe concert grand in a story about the Tabor Opera House in today's NYT. Can't figure out how to get the image to display, but the link works fine.

Whole story is here: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/08/11/arts/music/opera-sets-leadville.html

Wonder if any of our PianoWorlders know who is maintaining, working on the piano in the picture.

Oops, I didn’t mean to repost the above. Thought I hit “preview”! (Just wondered if the picture would pull through.)

Btw, cool story and handsome Knabe! thumb

FWIW - I've posted dozens of images here on PW. Why this one gave me a hard time remains a mystery. It really **is** an interesting story, and I hope the piano has some life in it yet.
