Lasker Seen Darkly

The Internet Archive has been loading millions of images from books into Flickr. Here is one chess photo I particularly liked.

Image from page 118 of "The American annual of photography" (1911) © Flickr user Internet Archive Book Images under Creative Commons.

The photo can be seen in context at archive.org americanannualof1911newy, where it is captioned 'DR. EMANUEL LASKER (Chess Champion of the World), B. J. Falk'. I tried to brighten the photo digitally, but wasn't completely satisfied with any of the results. Maybe someone else can do better.
