Chess Ads II

Continuing with Chess Ads I, the following image shows thumbnails of ads I collected in 2001.

Unlike the first ads I collected, I stopped throwing away the text associated with an interesting ad, and kept a copy of the ad together with a cropped copy of its principal image. Since I wasn't paying much attention to the content of the collection, I inadvertently collected many duplicates. You can see an example of both problems -- cropped copies and duplicates -- in the ads at the end of the fourth row. I'll address those problems when I finish the process of cataloging what I've already collected.
