Aug-31-05  RookFile: The player with the white pieces is
Franklin K. Young, and this game
was played at 42 Bolyston Street, Boston, where the club stayed until the early 1990's, moving to another location in Boston, and eventually to Somerville MA. (Pillsbury's birth place!)
Aug-31-05  RookFile: Ah, I forgot things in my old age.
Maybe it is 48 boylston street. That
broken down, old building is still today, home of the YMCU.
Nov-25-05  AlexanderMorphy: very rare to see a positional genius like pillsbury being mated in 16...
Nov-25-05  RookFile: Pillsbury wasn't Pillsbury yet.

  GrahamClayton: Maybe 9...g5 keeping the king-side closed may have been a better option.
