Chess Piece, Cathedral Square


In Cathedral Square there is a giant chessboard and most Sundays you’ll see people playing a game of chess – usually with a small crowd watching the game. The pieces used to be black and white – take a look at this old post of another game I photographed a few months back.

    I haven’t played chess in along time. Nice capture.

    I remember these – looks as though they’ve recently been repainted and polished.

    They are far fancier than the ones found in Hobart. Good find!

    They used to be white and black, but it’s really appropriate they are now red and black as these are the Canterbury Province colours.

    Wonderful Photo of a Fabulous chess set. Wonder about the age and origin of the set?

  • Absolutely divine! Magnificent work. Keep up the great photos Michelle!
