I've seen them too. I think all you can do is give your knowledgable opinion on these photos (or other artefacts that occasionally turn up) and if people think they know better, then you may as well...

It is a terrific copy, and shows that the writer of 'Dear Boss' was an educated person with good penmanship.

Yes, welcome Dave, I'm sure you'll enjoy the forum! One of my hobbies is collecting detective fiction of between the wars, (I like Sherlock Holmes too) so I do understand your obsession!

Found Oscar. (Spoiler) Towards the bottom right, with human facial features.

Also, is the animal at the tip a furry rather squashed-looking bear, with his front paws under his head, no body, under...

Did huge numbers of unidentified people die on the streets of London, though? I'm not disputing that some starving wretches did expire, especially in the winter, but their bodies would have gone to a...

I do think that Jack was a mix of a disorganised and organised killer. I certainly don't believe that he wanted to torture his victims. Jack was quite clinical in my view, smother/strangle them into...

PC Smith told the inquest that very few prostitutes solicited in Berner St. In other words it wasn't a regular beat. I do still tend to think that the man PC Smith saw Liz with was a client however,...

I agree, Packer's statements are not regarded highly by Ripper followers, (or by the police at the time). The question of the grapes is indeed problematic. However, (if Packer was honest) didn't...

Yes caz, a very interesting perspective. For instance, I still feel that PC Smith's suspect may well have viewed the Dutfield Yard row with some sardonic amusement and chose to kill there afterwards....

I believe this dreadful killing was supposedly linked with the Wanda Beach murders of two teenage girls in Sydney the previous year. There were apparently 'some points of similarity' according to a...

That is good news, as it does sound a good read. It was a bit puzzling that the book had its own Facebook Page but no publishing date seemed to be with it. I have 'Murder Houses of London' on my...

Thank you Howard, I'll take a look. It seems interesting and I have been waiting for it. The big disadvantage of living in Australia and buying books is freight charges. It's heaven when books I want...

I do agree that the Polly Nichols murder is slightly different to the others in that Jack attacked and killed in an open thoroughfare, deserted and very dark but still a public street. I do think...

Do you believe that BS Man was Jack, Anna? I do have a bit of a problem with that, in that BS Man's behaviour seems very blatant for that individual. He began a squabble with a woman in a public...
