Photos inside Mitre Square looking up towards the Gherkin towering overhead are really something to see. Perhaps someone will come along and post one.

Used to be the address of the Baltic Exchange after moving from Threadneedle Street.

If Jack was my suspect,he might well have been familiar with the area as a child
accompanying his father and uncle from Hull.
Both were Master Mariners trading the Baltic Sea.
