  GrahamClayton: Steinkuhler was arguably the best player in Manchester in the 1870's, with victories over Blackburne, Horwitz, Burn and Steinitz. Steinkuhler wrote the chess column in the Manchester Weekly Times in 1873.

  whiteshark: "Alexander Steinkühler (1834/5–1888) was a German player who emigrated to England in 1856 and in 1873 started a chess column in the Manchester Weekly Times and Examiner. The British Chess Magazine wrote that he died on 29 September of bronchitis, and reports from the Manchester Evening News that <"Mr. Steinkühler joined the Manchester club in September, 1856, immediately on his arrival in England, and from that time until his death — a period of 32 years — he continued a [sic] member, and was one of the most regular habitiues of the club-room."> ..."
