Characters Practicing for Live Chess Game
(Original Caption) Chess Comes to Life. Black King, White Queen, Knights, Bishops, and all the pieces of the age-old game of chess came to life and moved to music on a huge checkerboard at the Boots Gymnasium in Cornwall Road, London, England, recently. The "pieces" -girls dress in scarlet and white-were rehearsing for the "Living Chess Tournament" which is to be played between the House of Lords and the House of Commons and six other teams at the Hurlingham Club shortly. Photo shows a living chess game during rehearsal.
