On 7th February, 1905 George Henry Cullen was sentenced to 21 months hard labour in Wormwood Scrubs for stealing and receiving a bicycle. The court calendar provides details of his prior convictions:
He was known to the authorities by a number of names, including:
He was just under 5ft 4in tall, and sported numerous tattoos.
He must surely have been Walter Dew's Squibby, the 'mighty atom of the East End' who was 'covered from head to foot in tattoo designs'. But the September, 1888 conviction for the assault on Betsy Goldstein doesn't appear on the list. Apart from one press report and Dew's account I can find no record of the incident.
