Portsmouth Chess Scene

Arthur Brameld has supplied various cuttings from Newspapers and magazines which highlight some of the activities completed in the Portsmouth area. These give a great snapshot of chess in the area and include a number of photos of the players,  tournaments and activities.


Update Feb 2022 - From the Hampshire Chess Archives the cuttings from the Portsmouth Evening News Chess articles June to July 1961 by W.W Rose of Cosham Chess Club have been added. These are detailing some of the famous Hampshire chess players and information on the chess scene in the Isle of Wight. If these are difficult to read you can download the photos to expand.


Please supply any photos you have so I can add.
