Is anyone able to help with this? I have always taken it that Abberline had an unruly curl of hair to the left side of his forehead but am now unsure as to whether this is the case. Is it hair or a mark/shadow on the wall behind? (The uncertainty is caused by "Mrs Bridewell" who is of the opinion that it's not hair!).

I've read that there are no photos of Abberline, and only one drawing.
However, I have stumbled across this drawing. Does anyone know its provenance? I'd like to get one high-res image for use in my book, if poss.
There are at least three drawings, Helena. Here are the other two well known drawings, both of them newspaper sketches.
