Black-and-white photograph. Two men are sitting at a table in a large, decorated oriental-style café. In the background there are other tables around which people are sitting or standing. The two men are playing chess. The man on the left is side-on to the camera. He has a cocktail glass in his hand and is staring at the table before him. The other man is sitting crouched and facing the camera. He is smoking and looking at the other man.
