    Hi Scott. Ripper Confidential isn't very complimentary.

    Martyn,

    Then yes, the two books I was referring to was They All Love Jack and Deconstructing Jack.

    Ceeds,

    Good to see you!

    Yours truly,
    Tom Wescott

    Hey Tom,

    I never got a complimentary copy of "Ripper Confidential."

If so, then yes, that was probably it. Regarding Packer, the police didn't discredit him so much as he discredited himself repeatedly as I lay out in my Packer Chapter.

    Yours truly,

    Thanks Tom. They All Love Jack was indeed released on an unsuspecting public in 2015.

    Is it just me or does that sound dirty for some reason? Probably just me.

    Hi Mr Priestnall,

    That old bridge was originally a siding of the Bishopsgate Goods Yard, opened around 1840. It was opened by Eastern Countries Railway, which started in 1836. They merged at the time of the "big four" into Great Eastern. The concrete bridge is interesting, as the goods yard burnt down in 1964, and Shoreditch High St Station which it now serves was developed in the 2000's, I imagine it was fairly new when the yard closed?
    Its a reasonable assumption that Sarah Lewis passed under this bridge on her way to Spitalfields Market, possibly seeing Annie Chapman the morning of her murder.
    Hope that helps.
    Hi Al Bundy, thanks for the info. Appreciate it.

    As I was walking pass the bridge, I had the very fanciful (if not very original) idea if JTR made his escape by the railway line. I blame the winter sun!

    Cheers,

    Martyn

    Hi All,

    Robert, MrBarnett, my bad as you youngsters say, it must have been Brick Lane. Thanks for the links.

    I took note of a road off Hanbury Street, near the concrete bridge (and the brick remnant of a bridge) as a marker.

    Namely, Grimsbry Road/Street. (Not sure of the exact spelling).
    For info, Grimsby Road was known as St John Road at the time;

    Grimsby Street, E.2 runs off Brick Lane, but it’s quite a bit further north than Hanbury Street - in Bethnal Green, I think.

    Hi Martyn, can you clarify where your seeing these bridges? There very much were railway lines in the area at that time, but not around Hanbury St as far as I can see?
    Sorry, forgot to quote your post. See my post #5 for my reply.
