As promised, I tried to take some pictures of some of the details of 'The last Everett'. At this resolution you cannot see much of the signatures but I don't want the pictures too big.
South Haven City gave the piano to South Haven Memorial Library. They have contacted the local historical society to see if they will help buy a Dampp Chaser and help with maintenance. The library plans to have more local music programs for kids and will use the piano in those programs. The lady in charge of this is a piano teacher for beginning students and she and her sons play various kinds of harps so the program appears to be in the hands of a musician and music lover who also loves kids.
This all makes me happy, we'll see how it goes.
As you can see, the bench was never unpacked and has the original packing material in it along with the owners manual, warranty and an envelope with key cover keys and an allen wrench to remove the top cover
