Nice one Chris!

I wasn't sure if my e-mail account would allow me to attach large pdf's.

I believe it was number 31, and they viewed the scene from their back yard and over the fence.

Hi SC

I had to check myself, and found this from The Star 8th Sept:

"PAYING TO VIEW THE SCENE.
For several hours past the occupants of the adjoining house have been charging an admission fee of one penny to people anxious to view the spot where the body was found. Several hundreds of people have availed themselves of this opportunity, though all that can be seen are a couple of packing cases from beneath which is the stain of a blood track. "

I wonder what the front of 29 looked like back in the day. Of course I have seen all the old photographs showing the two doors, the right to the shop and the left to the corridor, but in some contemporary sketches I see a single door with the shop windows with blinders to the right of this single door.

Which one is the correct? Did 29 look pretty much like on the old photographs or not?

According to John Davis there was a window and a single door (to the passageway) at the front of the house.
There was also a dilapidated sign over, advertising Mrs Richardson's packing case business in white paint.

According to the Penny Illustrated Paper, "the neighbours on either side did much business by making a small charge to persons who were willing to pay it to view from windows the yard in which the murder was committed".

Missed this thread first time round

For any who are interested the map below shows outbuildings 1893-96

29 is the building 4 along to the left as you look at it from Barbers Yard.
