Graves of Famous Chess Players - No 1 in a series of .......?

All those of a nervous disposition should look away now! Here I am a few years ago paying homage at the grave of the great Paul Morphy, unofficial world champion between the years 1858-61. The Morphy family tomb can be found at the St Louis No 1 Cemetery in New Orleans. (Slightly dodgy area - I recommend going on a guided walking tour!) You would think I could have chosen to wear something slightly more respectful, wouldn't you?! As I don't have anymore photos of me at famous chess-players' graves, number 2 in this series could be a long time coming!
