The New Britain Chess Club Photo Gallery (1967 - 1994)

Supplement to "NBCC Highlights and History: 1900 - 2004" book

The NBCC supplemental photo gallery contains nearly 200 pictures from the Arkadijs Strazdins era.
Due to the overflow of photos, it was decided that it would be best to preserve them in a separate album.
