Download a Gold Mine...Chess Review 1944

I have just discovered a chess gold mine...a pdf download of all 1944 issues of Chess Review magazine. It's available at Simard Artizan FarmChess Review was a great magazine and it was filled with pictures, a rarity for that time. For example, below is a photo of Norma Reshevsky (Samuel's wife) who was serving as a timekeeper at the US Speed Championship.  Her job was to strike the bell every ten seconds. 

In this photo Mrs. Reshevsky is on a break from her timekeeping duties and is watching her husband at play.
