Hi How,

Obviously the Lechmere reference was tongue-in-cheek, but according to Booth's researcher in June, 1887, the occupier of 36, Berner Street was a railway carman who had 'been laid up for some time'. William Mortimer died in March, 1889, aged 49, so he may well have been chronically ill between 87 and 89.

Just thinking aloud here.

There was a woman identified by Booth's researcher as an 'unfortunate' who, to paraphrase his comment, was not plying her trade herself, but cleaned the rooms of other unfortunates. Given that there was still a tiny residue of Tiger Bay in Brunswick Street, I wonder if something similar obtained there?

The friend of Liz Stride who was interviewed by a Daily News reporter in Tiger Bay had this to say:

'I gets my living among 'em (prostitutes),' continued the woman with Frank communicativeness - ' not them as lives at the lodging-houses like her,' she explained; 'there ain't much to be got out of them, but the regular respectable ones. I does charing for them and lor bless you they just are scared. "I shall turn it up," they says. But then, as I says, what have they got to turn to?'

At the risk of spouting off again on an old theory of mine, I think the approach of Schwartz's suspect makes it even more likely that the second man he described, 'Pipeman', was the killer. I do believe Liz was a victim of Jack the Ripper, but not at the hands of the drunken public abuser Schwartz described.

Cheers,
Adam.
