History of Chess in Wales

In 2008, Martyn Griffiths wrote the book "Chess in Wales" (which is still available through Chess & Bridge or Moravian Press) during which many people sent him copies of old chess photographs. Unfortunately, the publishers did not do justice to them and the quality of reproduction was poor.

 

He currently has a record of about 60 pre 1970 chess related photographs for Wales which he intends putting into an album for depopsit at a county archives so that the record will not be lost and will be available to all.
