Today we’ve mostly been enjoying outdoor chess – not playing outdoor chess, it’s cold and wet out there and none of us are much good at the game anyway, but pictures of other people playing:
The Chess Game, by Sofonisba Anguissola, 1555.
Chess in Algeria in 1890
Chess on the front in France, 1918.
In Washington Square Park, in 1969.
And in Cuba, 2003, taken by Adam Jones.
