  MissScarlett: I was surprised to espy Alekhine, Kashdan and Yates in that pic, so I wondered if it could instead have been taken at the Hamburg Olympiad, which, it turned out, finished about three weeks earlier. But no:

Skinner & Verhoeven have Alekhine playing a simul in Liege a day before the tourney begins, so he was probably there as a special guest. Kashdan and Yates were likely on holiday, or Yates may have been doing a spot of reporting, too.
