Hi Paul,

I tend to agree but I do think that an early Jack the Ripper industry existed, albeit on a limited scale.

I see little reason to doubt that the early, sensational, literary offerings...

Hi Robert,

Quite possibly because you're a gentleman of a certain age. I watched the reruns!

Admittedly, the headgear worn by the cider swilling Windy Miller was a tad different to that worn...

How,

I seem to vaguely recall that a Jack the Ripper novelty pocket watch turned up on ebay some years ago, which was described as "vintage". I recall that when the watch was opened a caped figure...

Hi Debs,

Hi Kattrup,

You're absolutely right!

And not just Scotland Yard, the Home and Foreign Offices may also have corresponded with police departments dotted around the globe. In fact, I'm sure they...

Hi Kattrup,

Overseas archives have been neglected for far too long. In many instances I suspect the language barrier and lack of (in certain countries) centralised archives have been the main...

Hi Peter,

There are so many interesting areas of research, few of which (if any) have been completely exhausted. I truly believe that some of the best discoveries to be had are still waiting to be...

Hi Sam,

There's still a good deal of clinging on to the myths surrounding the case despite many of them having been conclusively dispelled many years ago.

My regards,

Hi Peter,

Dr Faulds' comments are certainly food for thought.

Personally, I've never believed that any of the missives sent to the police, newspapers, and press agencies were penned by the...

Hi Sam,

I suspect that Dr Faulds reached his conclusions regarding the "bloody thumbprint" much earlier than 1912, quite possibly in 1888.

Best wishes,

Sean.

Hi How,

Thank you!

I thought that Dr Faulds' comments on the "Saucy Jack" postcard would be of interest.

He was cruelly robbed of the credit he rightly deserved of being the first person to...

Just rejigged my brain! The photo was originally taken by Leonard Matters and appears in his 1928 book, "The Mystery of Jack the Ripper". It shows the row of terraced houses (mirrored in...

Hi How,

Yes it is.

It's appeared in quite a few publications over the years, not least Terence Sharkey's uninspiring book of 1987.

Best wishes,

Hi Rob,

That's true.

I've checked out the new Mitre Square on the internet, and it's a vast improvement on the depressing 1970s architectural crap that largely surrounded the square.

Hi Rob,

The technical name is indeed setts, or Belgian blocks, but like you I prefer the term cobbles. And to be honest most East End Victorians would have used the generic term cobbles to...

Hi Rob,

The Hanbury Street door knocker could well be the only, surviving, tangible artefact linked to one of the crime scenes.

My regards,
