      You need not apologize, Neil! I realize there is something in the air in Leicester!

          You're not really missing out on anything, Dixon. I bought a copy of the "Whitechapel 1888 Map", and was distinctly underwhelmed by it. The Godfrey map is much more useful, IMO.
          Kind regards, Sam Flynn

              Guys,

              Heres some advice, cos the Godfrey maps are fairly cheap I suggest you obtain two copies.

              One to keep prestine and shiney....oooooh, shiney things.

              Tother you can fry and eat, it....no, wait, thats something else. Tother you can mark and notate on should you wish to do so.

              My favs are the Goads fire maps. They really do have detail though cover far smaller areas.

                  Made me laugh, too.

                  I didn't twig that dixon was primarily interested in the ripperArt map. Like Sam says, it's flawed; but, nonetheless, I use both my copies (the booklet and the fold-out) all the time. Their advantage is that they point out, specifically, all the stuff that we're interested in. They certainly helped me get an idea of the distances involved. If you have any money left over after the Godfrey, and assuming that they're still available, I'd suggest that you buy those as well.

                      Whilst Alan Godfrey's maps represent good value for money and serve a purpose, you might also like to consider Chris Peen's 'Old Towns' series of o/s reproductions:-

                      http://www.oldtowns.co.uk/MapShop_london1888.htm

                      Although a little on the pricey side, starting at around five - six pounds per sheet (depending on the extent of area covered), they are excellent reproductions, printed on good quality paper and supplied rolled up in a cardboard tube.

                      I have used Chris's service on many occasions (he's a local lad, from Maidstone) and have always found him to be very enthusiastic and helpful, and always quick to respond.

                        Thanks for the tip, Steve. I'm always interested in relevant maps, and these seem to be exceptionally good ones.

                            Map in a Ripper Book

                            Incidentally, I just remembered that a very good quality image (a 4.7 megabyte jpeg) of the 1894 map may be downloaded at Casebook, at the bottom of this page.
                            Somewhere, in the flyleaf of some Ripper book, an excellent map of just Whitechapel was printed which was a great quick reference as one was reading. I'll have to find it.

                              Hi Dixon9.

                              I realise your post is nearly 2 years old, but I've only just finished the latest version of the Jack the Ripper map. You can find more information about it here: http://www.jacktherippermap.info/

                              Best Regards.
