    Sir George Thomas and chess master Capablanca play game with human chess pieces.

  • Description

    Location of events unknown.

    Sir George Thomas and "master tactician" Capablanca play game of chess with human chess pieces. Good C/Us of Sir George and Capablanca. The two opponents stand on either side of giant chess board on garden lawn. At their command children dressed as chess pieces move across board. Slightly bizarre.
