Default Annie Chapman Paris -Soir

Illustration accompanying an article on Annie Chapman's murder from Paris-Soir Dec 1934

annie chapman.JPG

It is captioned -at her feet two copper rings were laid...or something similar I think, which is taken from the text of the article.

Cheers How.
I'm trying to make some sense of the accompanying article.
The first paragraph says something along the lines of the copper rings were found placed carefully at her feet after being ripped from her fingers along with a few other belongings. It then goes on to say this showed an astonishing concern for order in a monster who left his horrible work on show.

I love the decidedly 1930s look of Annie's lower half and clothing in that image Debs.

Ha, yes. Paul. They weren't going for any historical clothing accuracy award that's for sure!
I like that they chose not to focus on the gore in the illustration after describing the murder as the work a monster in the text.
I find the little hole in the stocking quite poignant too.

Hi Debs


You could say that the MJK scene showed a concern for order too.

Well, the organs were on the bed, and what was left was placed on the table. Nothing thrown over the murderer's shoulder or chucked across the room, as in the more lurid reports.


It reminds me of a man taking apart a watch, with the intention of putting it back together again.


If there was frenzy, it seems to have been during the throat-cutting - after which, he settled down to do some exploring.

Yes, I see what you mean Robert. Everything placed somewhere close as if to be able to locate it again. I had never really thought about her flesh being placed on the table and her organs on the bed, interesting.

I noticed the hole in the stocking also. Very touching. I wonder if the drawing could have been done by a fine artist. Maybe someone who became famous later did artwork for the publication in 1888. (Maybe Sickert was moonlighting and drew from memory?)

Interestingly the caption under the picture says, "At HIS feet there were two copper rings and some coins." Why HIS and not her?
