The chess pieces lives in a big black box outside the library entrance. These gentlemen went to the box, brought out the pieces one by one, set them up, then they started to play! It made me so happy!
Lots of people came to watch the games - people of all generations, contributing and discussing tactics, and then playing eachother! It was marvelous! And all in a very pretty, very majestic doorstep of the Leeds Art Gallery and Town Hall.
I stole a pawn very briefly to take a photo - it made me so happy! :)
Hoorah for giant chess boards and chess pieces. And hoorah for strangers who play chess! :)
