    Not necessarily. He was CID, not uniform, note the CID men in the front row.

    Earlier threads doubted it was "our" Hutt.
    Thanks David.

    Earlier threads?

    identification was made in the date of photo, Hutts service records and Police Orders dated of the same period.

    If any one of them is McWilliam it would be on the far right of the Fosters row.

    The photo is atop Snow Hill station and taken in 1887, presumably for the Jubilee celebrations.

    Thanks chaps, that's very interesting!!!!

    Just out of interest do any similar photographs exist for Bishopsgate?

    I'm trying to see if I can put a face to PC882 Joseph PHIPPS who was stationed there between 1871 and 1891 (and as possibly was late as 1897).

    Indeed it is Hutt. If "Monty" reads this, perhaps he can give more details; he and Rob Clack wrote an article in Ripperologist about him, including that photo, many years ago.

    Edit. This thread appeared on Casebook at the time:

    Ladies/Gents,

    Can anyone tell me what the attached photograph is from?

    Which station is it?

    Does anyone have access to the full photograph?

    How many of the collar numbers can be made out?
