                  • 2nd photo down is a spindle-shaped object (?building) with the caption: "No introduction necessary." Well, maybe not to a Londoner in 2009. But on THIS side of the pond 8 1/2 years later, I have NO idea what the Hell it is! (And this quite pertinent to Ripperology or any other historical study: ASSUMED knowledge isn't always clear to EVERYONE at the TIME, let alone years/decades/centuries later!!)

                    • Ooops.

                      I was trying to post a reply to a 2009 posting by John Bennett. I thought that I had set it up correctly, but it seems like the cite didn't post.

                        I believe you mean his photo of the Gherkin.

                          • Photos inside Mitre Square looking up towards the Gherkin towering overhead are really something to see. Perhaps someone will come along and post one.
