Some interesting street chess photos from York (UK) by Indigo Goat.

York is a walled city from North Yorkshire, England (UK). It has been in existence for approximately 2,000 years, though only became known as York around 1,000 years ago. Richard II had planned to make York the capital of England, but was deposed before he could fulfill his wish. The city contains the fabulous gothic cathedral, York Minster (see aerial photo) which is the second largest in Northern Europe.
