R.I.P Frances Coles indeed. A few illustrations from the newspapers of the day--

The first illustration shows a prettier and younger girl than the mortuary photograph or even the other newspaper illustration shown here indicates. The murder scene was a passageway called Swallow Gardens under a railway arch in Tower Hamlets between Chamber Street and Royal Mint Street. Here the victim was found at 2:20 am on the morning of Friday, February 13, 1891 by P.C. Ernest Thompson 240H. As you will see, in the close up of the bottom panel of the series of sketches, the murder scene is erroneously called "Sparrow Gardens." In any case, the location is just east of the Tower of London where the Royal Mint was located. The last illustration shows seaman James Sadler with Coles in White's Row before she was killed. Sadler was arrested on suspicion of killing Coles, went to trial for her murder, but ultimately was found not guilty.

I believe the Coles murder site is the only one that still exists pretty much as it was then.
