Default Not Lose Sight of the man

Anyone seen this before? This occurred right after the discovery of the Pinchin Torso. I was wondering a couple of things. First, was there a Gravel Lane near the river or is this referring to the one near Mitre Square? Second, anyone have an idea of who the man they didn't want to lose sight of, was?

Awesome find! Interesting to see the police believed two men dumped the pinchin torso & the whitehall torso! There needs to be a book full of all the press reports! And the echo shows up again!

Hi Jerry,

I can answer the first question. Old and New Gravel Lane ran down from the Highway to the river at Wapping/Shadwell.

Gary.

Thank you, Gary!

That must be the one they were searching, then. I wonder who tipped them off? I could be wrong but it sounds like some of this may relate to the "strange story" John Arnold gave to the police a few days before? Was he the man they would not lose sight of? Or someone he mentioned, like John Cleary?

I believe the "Guzzling Jim" story surfaced about this time, too.

Excellent work, Jerry !!!

Jerry's find is a classic example of once previously undigitized or, possibly overlooked, articles which continue to surface.

Howard and Sean,

Thanks. I always search to make sure something hasn't been posted or I don't recall hearing about it. Sometimes I wonder if a lot of these clips are hiding somewhere in the archives of Howard Brown! But as Howard has mentioned, sometimes they get overlooked or, are fresh archives. All the more reason to keep digging in the papers. Never know when the "big one" is going to surface that moves us another inch forward.

Fabulous find, Jerry. I've never seen it before or read anything similar.
The Echo seems to be a treasure trove for these kind of previously unseen snippets.

Hi at all!

September 16, 1889:

"...three small unoccupied tenements near Gravel Lane were visited... Inspector Henry Moore and Inspector E. Reid..."

It reminds me of:

November 6 , 1889:

"Police Inspector Moore... In two squares the Inspector pointed out three houses where he had said he had gone to find him"

http://www.jtrforums.com/showthread....73&page=8Sagar 1905:

"The sounds were followed to King's Block in the model dwellings in Stoney Lane, but the search got no further."

Gravel Lane led to Stoney Lane, there were some blocks, North Block, Princesīs Block, Kings Block and South Block.

Karsten.

Wall writing, Neil Bell, Rob Clack:

"There are a couple of mentions to writing being found on 'King's Block', part of the Artizans' Dwellings between Harrow Alley and Stoney Lane. Moreover, they are from newspaper reports written in 1905 on the retirement of Detective Inspector Robert Sagar. The reports are contradictory and should only be read as possibilities."
