  • Ginger Beer

    The reference to Ginger Beer eludes to JTR having consumed the contents prior.

    Was the specific reference to Ginger Beer a clue as to the killer's location?


    George Hostler was a Ginger Beer maker who lived next door to Charles Lechmere.


    Purely a coincidence of course, but i love coincidences

    And wasn’t Joseph Barnett lodging with a mineral water maker named Isaac Hostler in 1901?

      According to the Booth survey of 1887, there was then a ‘Ginger Beer Manufactory and Shop’ at 2, James Street, so no longer CAL’s next door neighbour.

          Perhaps she had gingivitis, dentistry not quite being what it is now, too?
