    You have no idea of English comprehension.

    I didn't write it,only thought it was an interesting read,as "there was a tradition that Eddowes stayed at Dorset Street".

    Argument - YouTube
    Its so interesting that I get insulted by people with crackpot theories and wild imaginations. Thats online for ya.

    Ok, so I did re-read it and the last line of the relevant passage mentions Eddowes. Without any validation from anyone or any source. Wonder why there is no mention Eddowes wasnt even in town a few weeks earlier, or that her and John Kelly supposedly were together virtually every night before then.

    Worthless. As I suspected.

    Curiously enough, the warehouse at No. 26, now closed by large doors, was until a few weeks ago the nightly resort of poor homeless creatures, who went there for shelter. One of these women was Catherine Eddowes, the woman who was murdered in Mitre-square.
    The "warehouse" you refer to was the shed which was accessed directly off Dorset St and below Elizabeth Praters room. Where you got the Eddowes sleeping there bit is I assume just another one of your "just for the jolly" points. Funny how often you post things it seems only you know about. Hmm.

    Yes, I can see what you're saying. This would certainly reconcile the photograph with Bond's notes if that's not her arm we are looking at.

    Its interesting that the discussion here is about her right arm...which in any image Ive seen does seem to be out of the shoulder socket,.. because there was some experience with just a right arm in early that September. The Pimlico discovery.

    The contrast on this one is "darker" than your previous effort.
    Using 120" 1080p blown up an additional 40%.
    Thumb is similar shade as her left hand, and the thumbnail and thumb shape are reasonably defined.
    Mary's left eye shows up better in your previous photo,she seems to have light blue eyes.

    Contrast on this is very good.
    Right thumb shows up well,if you magnify on you PC screen.

    Richard, I'm fine with your conviction. Had her right arm been severed to any degree I would expect it to have been mentioned. Early press reports also mentioned her head had been removed, that is also not supported by any evidence either.

    As I said before, we seem to assume the photo of the body on the bed captures what witnesses first saw on entering the room. However, press reports indicate otherwise. Several doctors conducted a preliminary examination on the body prior to sending for a photographer.

    I think we can safely assume that conducting a preliminary examination involves more than them just standing back with their hands in their pockets.
    As a consequence, her right arm is described by Dr. Bond in one position, but later, after the examination, the photographer captures the arm in a different position. A doctor had moved her arm.
    The photographer was not brought in to capture the evidence prior to an investigation as might be done today. Forensic investigation had not evolved to that level in the late 19th century.
