Cheers Steve, do you have a link to Jerry's thread? Is it the one concerning Moore, who found the Pimlico arm?

Here's the suggestion about boatmen I was thinking of, from the Star 29th June '89;

"On being asked by “Ginger Nell” where she had been she replied “Sleeping on the seats on the Chelsea Embankment.” She further stated that she walked about at night in the neighbourhood of the Albert Palace and Albert Bridge. She was warned against a dangerous class of boatmen, who infested the district, but she did not appear to heed the advice. This appears to be the last that ever was seen of her, until her remains were found at various points in the Thames."

And on the (tangential) subject of contractors...

In the Penny Illustrated Paper of Sept 14th '89, there is a sketch of the torso being found in the Pinchin Street railway arch. In the yard beyond, which was used by the Board of Works for stonework is a sign, apparently saying "C Hinchliffe & co", who I assume to be a subcontractor.
Probably nothing to do with the murder, but just thought I'd mention it.

Apropos the Pinchin Street torso, how do people out here view the fact that this torso was dumped just across the street from where Charles Lechmere grew up, only a few yards away?

Is it just another coincidence? Or are more phantasies than mine tickled by it?

Hi Christer,

As you may remember, I believe the Cross home was a little further away than that, probably 100 yards or so. And I'm pretty certain it was still standing in 1889.

Nope, I did not remember you saying that, Gary - but I do remember that Maria Lousia lived at various addresses in Pinchin Street. 1861 it was 13 Thomas Street (the former name of Pinchin Street) and in 1881 it was 23 Pinchin Street. And if i m not misremembering, there was also a third Pinchin Street address tied to Lechmeres mother at some stage.

So I will rephrase myself: Apropos the Pinchin Street torso, how do people out here view the fact that this torso was dumped in the same small street where Charles Lechmere grew up, and where his mother had lodgings on more than one occasion?

Is it just another coincidence? Or are more phantasies than mine tickled by it?

My 'phantasy' is well and truly tickled.

His ever-so-respectable Ma had to bring her son up in Tiger Bay.
