  1. Kevin,
    That would be the magazine’s photo editor. Negatives can be viewed from either ‘side’ (back or front, giving a different ‘angle’) and are often ‘flipped’ to get a better composition. Net result with any featuring a correctly set up board is that we see a dark square on h1, but should be suspicious of boards correctly set (unless from tournament play)! If I remember correctly, the problem occurs on the cover of at least one old Dover edition of Lasker’s manual – there’s the great man with a dark square on the right!!
    Best regards, Kevin
