This Is Not A Pipe Dream

To all our readers,

The Streatham and Brixton Chess Bloggers wish you seasonal greetings, and great chess in 2012.

Picture from: The Ultimate Pipe Book, by Richard Carleton Hacker [sic] Souvenir Press, 1988, where it says that the picture, from the 1950s, was "an attempt to popularize women's pipes." Thanks to Richard Rawles for the tip.

Don't miss another edition of ejh's Twelve Puzzles of Xmas, kicking-off tomorrow.

Insert your own comment about the chessboard here.

Happy Christmas everyone.

Justin has pointed out to me that the chessboard is in fact the right way around but the bottom right-hand corner is partially hidden.

hey ho. Happy Christmas anyway.
