I believe this is looking from the back step towards the rear of the yard. The outhouse being the structure on the right. But what was behind the gate/fence, there appears to be some dead ground and what is the wall just behind that?
I've looked at the 1888 map and it doesn't show any houses? A warehouse perhaps?
I'm certain I read somewhere that neighbours, were charging onlookers to view the crime scene from their windows. Now I don't believe there would have been much of a view from the addresses either side, but the rear ones would have. Now assuming that 29 is roughly where the H is. It appears that it's yard backed onto another yard and then some sort of building, it doesn't appear to be a dwelling as there would be no access route. Also if the picture above looking towards the rear of the yard is correct. That would suggest there was a wall, which doesn't appear to be there on the map?
However, if we move slightly further down the street towards the R, there appears to be a small yard at the rear of the property near the A, could this be 29? It appears to have an outhouse and a small wall (which tallies up with the picture) and then another yard, backed onto houses (Pelham Street). Could these be the houses be were people were viewing the crime scene from?

I have just sent you a private message. Tim Mosley's article, "The House that Jack Built" is SIX parts long. I will send a pdf copy of each copy of Ripperologist that contains the series if you send me your email address by private message. Since they are large pdfs I'll send them to you in separate emails. All part of the service.
