Reading some of the comments here recalled an article I read describing an algorithm accomplishing, with much more complexity, what's been discussed here.

The Goulston Street doorway would have been a convenient stopping-off point for anyone heading to "Doss-house Central" from Mitre Square.
Heading straight for Dorset Street.

Possibly, but the Victoria Home and the doss-houses of Thrawl Street, Fashion Street, Flower & Dean Street and White's Row were all closer to the Goulston Street doorway than Dorset Street, and those of Brick Lane about equidistant. There were a LOT of lodging-houses crammed into that small area.

White's Row,then Dorset and Thrawl being equidistant.

Victoria Home surely had a rule banning Rippers at that time of the morning
