This Autobridge Playing Board, made in 1938, belonged to Dunfermline Bridge Club. Since 1978, the club has been part of the Dunfermline Tennis and Bridge Club Ltd, based at Bothwell Street.

Bridge belongs to the family of trick-taking card games and is a development of the game Whist. It is played with a standard deck of playing and consists of two main parts: the Bidding (also called the Auction) and the Play. Because bridge is a partnership game, it requires four players, with each player sitting opposite their partner at a card table.

Many people perceive bridge to be a very complicated game, but the Bridge Club assures us that anyone can learn to play!
