Default John Landy's "Man in False Moustache"

Recently, A.P. Wolf unearthed an article which touched on a man who sold disguises. If someone can locate that URL before me,please do so and affix it to this thread.

In early October of 1888, a man named John Landy and another fellow followed a mysterious American ( the story was covered in the Daily News of October 9th ) who had been arrested the previous morning and whose conduct seemed suspicious. Landy and his cohort followed this man down Leman Street, to Royal Mint St. and finally across to King Street, where Landy and his partner waited for him to emerge from a house 25 minutes or so later....wearing new clothes and a moustache.

Any thoughts?

Hi Suz! our "come to work as a goth day" was bad enough, we raised over 100 and all the staff really made a wonderful effort (bless 'em!) - the guys were great in wigs, one grandfather looked just like Ozzy (I will PM you the pics when I scan them in the computer)

Apparently it is the eyebrows that make the difference facially, if trying to disguise yourself properly (useless fact #1001)

NB *Note to Ali and Suz on entering the Twilight Home for Bewildered Ripperologists - We could make a fortune transforming the other Residents into their favorite suspect or victim! - we just need to invest in some wigs and theatrical make up now before we lose our short term memory and forget!
