    Here's a view of the eastern horizon from London - with a generic, rural background image I hasten to add! - at 5:30 on that morning, using the astronomical software "Stellarium"

    Dawn was at 4:51 a.m., sunrise at 5:25 a.m., so I would humbly suggest that this is not a proven 'fact,' and is, indeed, very much in doubt. But we're a tough crowd.

    I agree, pass shoddy even.

    He has the Chapman date correct but the events surrounding the discovery of the body and the timing belong to Polly Nichols, at least in the first paragraph. Then in the second paragraph he correctly places Annie at 29 Hanbury Street.

    This is a very big mistake and discredits the report.

    For what it is worth this thread is 100+ replies in so I am not sure if the Keppel's report has been posted. So here it is (maybe again).

    There is a typo on Table #2, page 18 and one factual error on page 9, (a "2:20" discovery of the apron) otherwise it is an interesting article.

    A HITS evaluation supporting the Tabram connection is on page 17

    Perhaps Spitalfields flower market/fruit auction entrance in 1888....

    "young photographers Mark Jackson & Huw Davies set out to record the life of the market that operated on this site for over three centuries, before it closed forever in 1991."

    Was curious about fruit auctions...so below so far I have found...
    So the possible killer's auction dates were end of the month or first or near/until 8th of the month then resupply/come back.

    Flower auctions page 590

    Fruit auction/auctioneers page 136 - 137 although in US/1907, should be similar.

    Only image so far I found on fruit auction,1901,although Covent garden,was more high-end than Spitalfields market.

    In 1888 only 2 trips to Hamburg/Harwich per week not 3 as in 1892.

    Bradshaw Continental Guide, September 1888

    Depart Liverpool Street Station at 8 pm,leaves Harwich at 10:00 pm to Hamburg every Wednesday and Saturday
    Return from Hamburg Wednesday and Saturday evening. (27-28 hours)

    In any case so my belief it was an apple/fruit salesman/seller from perhaps Altes Land or Calvados/Normandy - big apple producers,or buyer,
    per Robert Horner's/Brigg's testimonies,fruits/samples - principally of foreign consignments,auction opening on March 1,1888 whichever fruit was in harvest.


    Happy New Year all.

    Regarding Robert Horner's statement above "The great bulk of the samples of fruit,and so on,come up by the Great Eastern via Harwich from Germany and France..' the routes from France sort of did not make sense.
    * He had 20,000 tons of potatoes,2000 sold to America,the rest to anybody including Spitalfields Market buyers but had lots of competition.


    Harwich (Parkeston Quay) to London 6x daily 5:00 am (for steamers arriving from Rotterdam and Antwerp) 7:55 am 9:58 am 1:00 pm 3:10 pm 5:40 pm


    - From Germany 3 routes to Harwich then to London:

    Rotterdam to Harwich to London, daily except Sunday, depart 6:15 pm to 5:00 am arrive 6:50 am - 12 hrs 35 min

    Antwerp to Harwich to London daily except Sunday depart 5:45 pm to 5:00 am arrive 6:50 am - 13 hrs 5 min

    Hamburg To Harwich (steamers), Harwich to London, 3x a week depart 10:45 pm - Tue/Wed/Sat - 27 hrs 50 min
    (this route including from Altes Land near Hamburg)

    - From France it did not go to Harwich,Great Eastern did not pass Dover,Littlehampton,Newhaven,Folksetone which were/are across/destinations
    on England from France - Calais,Honfleur/Caen,Dieppe,Boulogne/Calais respectively.There was also a St. Malo to Channel Islands to London route.
    But still probably end in Liverpool Street station London and carted to Spitlafields market 4/few blocks away.

    Autumn of terror probably had someting to do with produce in season in autumn sold at the Spitalfields Market.


    Apples and pears harvested in August - November in Europe for the most part,depending on variety.

    More on Spitalfields market 1888 which I believe the ripper was headed to.

    February 16 1888 Commission on Market and Tolls.


    - Robert Horner: leasee of Spitalfields Market,since 12 years

    (Sir Thomas Martineau)

    Have you auctions in the market now? Not any.

    You are going to use your proposed flower market as an auction room are you not? As an auction room and flower market.

    And you either have established or propose to create a flower market? Yes,it will be ready by 1st of March,it is now nearly completed.

    So you think that a want is felt for sales by auction? I think so; they seem to be wanting to come there to sell,because they show samples.The great bulk of the samples of fruit,and so on,come up by the Great Eastern via Harwich from Germany and France,and they can bring them into Spitalfields and show the samples,and there sell them...The auction is principally of foreign consignments.

    There are three market days ...There is a market everyday but the growers come in three days. *(Tues,Thurs,Sat)

    The greengrocers come there in the morning in the summer season at 3 or 4 o'clock,and they,some of them,stop for 2 or 3 hours there buying their goods.

    Any vegetables that are left at the end pf the day are...bought more by higglers and men that stand hanging about;they are not quite costermomgers but
    men who hang about the market and buy...pots it in the ground and sells it in the after part of the day and the next day.

    ..the costermongers are very useful people in clearing the market...: I have endeavoured to make roads through Spitalfields market,which there
    were not before,so that a costermonger,at a given time in the morning,can bring his barrow into the market and load from a grower's
    van,and so,save 1s or 1s 6d porterage....the costermonger can bring his vehicle to the market at 8 o'clock in the morning..."

    The stall keepers get so mamy things stolen at night.There are four small streets belonging to the local authority,and what I have applied for
    was to have gates to shut the market up at night,and they refused.


    - Mr James Briggs: solicitor on behalf of Mr. Horner.

    ..the market gardeners attend the market as regular as ever they did.The salesmen deal more in the large fruit and potato business.

    As regards foreign supplies,and supplies from a long distance,that is so.There necessarily must be salesmen in those cases.


    - Mr. John Denton: costermonger,chiefly,Spitalfields Market

    In Spitalfields we can buy cheaper than we can at other places....more people go there...more growers come there.


    - Mr James Allen: farmer Dartford,Kent.

    We sometime have something like 20 horses a day.

    And you have standing rooms for waggons;have you any stall provided? Yes,we have room to pitch the fruit and those sort of
    things,as well as standing room for the waggons.

    Have you any office? No...we have a desk.

    Would it be an advantage to you to have an sale by auction in the afternoon? I do not think so.I like rp sell my things and go home.


    - Thomas Matthews,market gardener:

    I send 12 waggons a week.

    Formerly we were oblged to be there in the summer as early as two or three o'clock in the morning; the market used to begin at three
    o'clock...Now you can get in at any time,and the buyer can bring his carts and unload the goods off the seller's waggons into his cart.

    The beeline home directly from Mitre Square is very illogical Fisherman, particularly when you consider that the odds of getting caught are multiplying with each successive murder. More police, more Vigilantee groups, pressure from the crown to get these solved. Why would a killer who evidently is intending to remain at large leave an arrow pointing in the direction he left Mitre Square. And the apron section "was not there" when Long passed at 1:20am, so, the apron was not left on the way home from Mitre. It could have been placed there an hour later.

    Considering the fact that "Jewes/Juewes/Juwes" are the subject matter in the GSG, is it a coincidence that it ends op on a passageway wall leading to model homes almost exclusively occupied by Jews?
    That ”arrow” would have pointed to innumerable lodgings. And the killer may have felt that dropping it in Brighton was too risky.
