I agree, Dusty. Some say Mizen did nothing wrong. Perhaps not in the sense of protocol. I believe Christer even stated at one point or another that Mizen had no choice but to rely on his fellow policeman (or words to that effect), but, I would say 'obviously', that’s not true. He had 2 men with him who had just arrived from the place and, according to his own account, they had told him very little. So, why not ask them a couple of questions while he had the men still with him? Where is she lying exactly? Was the policeman already there when you arrived? What did he say exactly? Did you get a good look at the woman yourselves? Did she seem drunk to you? Did she talk? Was she moving? Could you see if she was hurt/sick?

The name of the eastern end of Hanbury Street had indeed been Church Street in earlier days, Steve. I've seen it on different old maps.

Without checking, I seem to remember there were specific police guide lines about blowing whistles in residential areas. Where's Monty when you need him?
Let me rephrase. He heard Thain and signalled as they could visually see each other. The whistle was not needed.

Church Street was in between Hanbury Street and Flower and Dean Street: https://booth.lse.ac.uk/map/16/-0.07...033.0,181900.0

Charles Booth's Poverty Map is an excellent geographical resource of the period: https://booth.lse.ac.uk/map/14/-0.1174/51.5064/100/0

It even has a search feature!

Harry & Robert,

It's a very good motive and very close to my view on the events. Although I take it a bit further.
There is no conspiracy as you say Robert, it just a man who has made a mistake, which had no material affect on the crime, trying to protect his reputation.

John, because he was concerned about his reputation. Without the Lloyds story he may have indeed told the truth with perhaps a minor spin. With it his hand was forced or take the consequences.

The different versions of events were not seen as a major issue it seems in 1888, and were not until the proposal of Lechmere as the killer. Then a minor issue is expanded to suggest Lechmere is lying.

I think it time to put those events back into perspective, and I will give the detailed argument for that in the coming months (part 3)
This thread is a great example of why I am not posting yet, ideas are flowing which need to be assessed fully before the final write-up is completed.

Steve

Thanks, John. I have a deluxe full set of Booth maps in "wall-chart" format, but that search feature is really handy. Ideal for browsing! (I never knew, until now, that there used to be a smallpox hospital on the site of today's Royal Free in Hampstead.)

I agree John use it myself in conjunction with the OS maps and Goad

The church street I was talking about is older than the booth maps and a different one you mention.

Goad Vol XI sheet 324-1 names the eastern end as "Hanbury St (late Church St)"

Since I'm looking at Goad maps, Vol XI sheet 312-1 shows a stable block and storage shed for carts and vans in Corbet's Court, which is where Paul was said to have worked as a carman.
