Description

Reed visited Vermont's Tunbridge Fair, camera in hand, on several occasions. In 1964, Vermont Life published a major photo-essay on the fair, which the editors referred to as "Vermont's own" World's Fair. The fair had a well-earned reputation for being the place where Vermonters let their hair down. This particular photo shows an elderly woman selling butternut fudge and other sweets at a booth at the fair.
