The above photograph is titled " Chess in Brick Lane"
" Brick Lane at lunchtime on Sunday is a bustling, noisy place, especially if it’s a fine day. In the middle of all the clamour, on the day when Richard took this picture, there were five men sitting in complete silence staring down at the chess boards in front of them. One of them – he’s the one in the umbrella hat – was taking on all the other four at the same time, moving up and down along the boards. As far as Richard could judge by the faces of his opponents, he was on his way to beating all four."
