  • Warcry Publishing Author Jamie Boyle on the Trail of Jack the Ripper

    Jamie Boyle, initially naf author who penned probing books about recent true crime figures such as Paul Sykes and football celebrities in the North of England and Scotland, is potentially writing a book about the Whitechapel murders. His goal seems to be a from-the-ground-up approach and his "outsider" status in Ripperology - as it has with other such writers in the past - may prove refreshing.
    He does pursue erstwhile sensationalist subjects and handles the subject matter with some sensitivity.
    Here are one of his video logs from his recent London trip. He is looking for guidance in many areas in the field so some of you may proffer your sage advice to him:

    Thanks for the heads up.

    So the Commercial Tavern was the old Commercial Street Police station? That was news to me.

    I must have walked passed it loads of times and didn't realize. Doh!

    Please me that the police station was built above a pub, and the pub wasn't a later development. Ha ha.

      Don't be too hard on yourself. I believe the Commercial Street police station is actually the red brick building which can be seen on the left of the video, across the road from the tavern.

        Oh okay. Thanks for clarifying.

          No worries. As can be seen on this contemporary map, both buildings existed in 1888. So I'd say the video was somewhat misleading...unless he was being satirical.

          Edit: ok, you might not be able to actually see them....but they're there. Police station is the entire smaller triangular block, tavern is at the lower tip of the larger triangular block.
