In a civil registry office in the Soviet Union, some time in the 1960s: The men are immersed in a game of chess. The brides are bored, most of them have already fallen asleep.
So, the long waits in government offices were partly responsible for the Soviet dominance in chess.
Great photo, thanks for sharing.
My, a chess player or not, I guess anybody would love the people of the old USSR for this! :)
