Victorian illustration to download showing a soiree (evening party) at a chess club. Chess boards have been set up on tables in the centre of a large room, and men and women are playing chess and watching the games. Others sit and chat round the edge of the room. A platform at the end of the room has been decorated with garlands, and here buffet tables have been set up.
