Default Tabram Questions

I thought a 'catch all' thread for random Tabram questions was in order, since there isn't one. And I have a question to ask to start it off. The following is from a report prepared by Inspector Ellisdon and is on page 10 of my first edition copy of 'Ultimate':

'A description was circulated in 116 Infn. 7.8.88...'

Can anyone tell me what '116 Infn' is referring to?

Yours truly,

Tom Wescott

I believe it stands for Information Tom.

Infn 116 is the 116th Info bulliten that year. if I recall correctly.

Hi Monty and Cog, thanks for that. Is there by chance a volume somewhere containing all these bulletins? I bet it would make for fascinating reading.

Yours truly,

Tom Wescott

Thanks for the thread Tom.
As you know I've been taking a look at Tabram myself, so I think that this is going to turn into a useful thread for me.

My first random question :

Does anyone have a definitive answer on the dimensions and layout of the staircase and landings at GYB? I've read all of the witness descriptions and comments that I can find, but was hoping for something a bit more objective as in a plan or photograph.

I believe the closest is a plan of the building ext door.

Someone (John Bennett I believe) said the plan of GYBs is missing.

Hi Sarah

I think the most helpful clues to the layout of George Yard Buildings are here:-

http://forum.casebook.org/showthread.php?t=3963

There is only the one photo (The John Bennett discovery) of the back of the buildings - the rest is deduced from photos of the similar building next-door...together with the known picture of the front of the building.

It's worth reading the thread right through to see how deductions about the building's layout evolved...and as befits a detective story, the denouement is right at the end...

All the best

Dave

Thank you both !!!

Dave, I'm starting to worry whether you've read every single thread on the forum . I've searched for something like that and had absolutely no joy in finding it . . . not that I'm complaining. Your help in pointing me in the relevant direction is hugely appreciated.

Thanks again,

I lurked a long time before joining, (and at times it's certainly beginning to feel like it).

More to the point though, I'm becoming worried that Tom has actually contributed to every ruddy thread on the forum!

Best wishes

Dave
