  • Whitechapel Society Journal - Dec 2008

    Hi gang,

    Yes, it is now on sale and it is great!

    The December edition of the WSJ is out and about - and I'm not talking about the 'Wall Street Journal'. We are talking about the Whitechapel Society Journal.

    "What is in it?" I hear you cry.

    Well we have an obituary for the late lamented ALBERT JOHNSON written by Christopher Jones.
    I had problems getting this done as I originally approached a commentator on the 'diary' who refused to do an obituary on dear old Albert. Rather childish I thought as they claimed to 'know' Albert very well!
    Anyway, Christopher Jones was on hand to kindly provide one for us.

    Then we have the brilliant write up on Ms. Siviter's talk concerning the 'Jack the Ripper' Michael Caine film from 1988.

    The brilliant writer Joe Chetcuti provides an exceptional article on
    Frank Froest a detective employed partially on the Ripper case.

    We have a review of a recent event at the Museum of Docklands that went under the title of Jack the Ripper and Popular Culture. This event included a talk given by Professor ChristopherFrayling and it was a great success. You can read the full account here only!

    We have another article researched by Nick Connell and Jon Ogan concerning further crimes and murders in Miller's Court over the years.

    Then there are the letters, the news and views in the Central News Agency section plus our regular OFF THE WALL piece by Robin Odell. All this can not be missed!!!

    And finally, we have Sir Charles Warren on the front cover reading the WSJ!!!
    Fear not, this was not some dodgy psychic experiment, this was the actor Hugh Fraser indulging in a copy of the WSJ recently. Apparently, he is a big fan!

    What's not to like.

      I enjoyed the lengthy article on the Docklands presentation by Prof. Frayling and the other individuals who participated. Thanks for including it in this month's issue,sor...

            Having read the review of the Frayling talk, I kick myself for not going.

              Don't kick yourself too hard John.

              It was just as well The Journal did go as we produced a full account for all you readers out there.

              The next edition of The Journal will have a full review of the recent exhibition at the Docklands Museum.
              I thought that would excite you!

                  It probably passed you by Philip - or is it philiph these days?

                  The exhibition was concerned with a bloke who went around the Victorian East End killing people. Wait..I think I've just let the cat out of the bag!!!
                  Drat!

                    I remember that one. It had a stuffed doggie in it.

                        What ever the dog did to deserve that I can only imagine.

                        The fact will still be that we will be producing a full account of the exhibition but elsewhere in The Journal there will be a few surprises and an interview that might make a few Ripperologists go "och!"

                            Hi Adrian

                            Couldn't you go on PayPal and up the subscription price a bit. That sending a personal cheque business is so unwieldy, especially, I imagine, for non-UK folks. I just subscribed to Ripperologist via PayPal and it took about 10 seconds

                            Plus your yearly subscription price is ridiculously cheap for what you get.

                            3 pints or 2 Big Mac Meals vs. Whitechapel 1888 Magazine for a year?

                            No contest.
