    The Hereford Times had an excellent chess column from 1885 written by experts and including coverage of national events. I have looked at a few of these years on broadsheet in the BL. At present only one year from this period is in BNA. So although I have little interest in local Herefordshire matters, this title gets one of my precious votes.

    I agree and am voting for this Victorian sports periodical, a competitor to The Field and providing an alternative perspective of many of the same events and issues. Not just field sports; it had an excellent chess column from 1870 to 1885.

    I requested this soon after you started and am very pleased many years were finally added in summer 2019. But where is 1857 (though no chess that year)? And I agree with everyone calling for you to continue beyond 1911 so I give this a vote. The Field had Britain's most important chess column up to the death of Amos Burn in 1925 and the column was also good when revived in post-WW2 years, when J. du Mont and then Leonard Barden conducted it. See the book by T. Harding, 'British Chess Literature to 1914' for more information on which titles had chess columns.

    Yes it is very confusing that you claim to have the London Evening Standard when what you actually present is The Standard (the morning paper which ceased publication during WW1). I'm a historian and wrote to you about this two years ago and got fobbed off. I also agree about the Manchester Evening News and gave it a vote elsewhere.
