    Thanks for that, Stephen.

    A good illustration of the fate that would inevitably befall these toffs on the very rare occasions when they ventured into that district with their finery improperly concealed. If this sort of thing could happen in mid-afternoon in company and carriage, just imagine what would happen in the small hours of the morning, in darkness, if the toff was alone in that district with his finery on display!

    Christmas wishes to all,

    Ben

    Toffs in Spitalfields

    An interesting 1885 Old Bailey trial.

    This makes Mr. Astrakhan decidedly downmarket.
