         The History and The Culture of Chess

      The Scotsman


August  2005

The Bishop Berkley offered me this newspaper clipping from the archives of the Scotsman Newspaper. It's a bit hard to read in places, but worth the effort.

The Scotsman was founded as a weekly newspaper in 1817 (on January 25th - Robert Burns' birthday) by William Ritchie and Charles Maclaren. It became a daily paper in 1855. It's was originally published at 347 High Street in Edinburgh and later moved first to Cockburn Street and then to an elaborate site on the historic North Bridge. Finally it settled in it's present location of 108 Holyrood Road.
