Some vintage (online) chess magazines

While diving into the Internet Archive I came across a collection of old Chess Review magazines. The earliest issues are from the 1930's and provide an insight into the American chess scene of the 30's, 40's and 50's. Of particular interest are the first reports on Bobby Fischer in the 1955 issues.
You can find the magazines at
