Ancient Chess Columns
Earlier this year I had a post about Google providing on line archives to newspapers such as The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age. Paul Dunn recently informed me that the National Library of Australia already performs this service. They have digitised issues from 1803 through to 1954. The direct link to this service is here and at least when I clicked on it, the featured article was a chess column in the SMH from 22 December 1906. I assume that the featured newspaper changes each day so you may not be as lucky as I was. If not, just type "chess" into the search box and wade your way through the 38000+ links that come up!
