Hi All,

The original name of Seven Dials was C*ck and Pye Fields.

Regards,

Simon

Hi

I realise that this is of no important consequence but I have a friend (whose family originate from the Yorkshire area,) who is the spitting image of Robert D Stephenson. The resemblence is uncanny, next time I see him I intend to ask him if it would be possible to take a photo of him and post it here in this thread.

Of marginal importance to the great scheme of Ripperology, but maybe of interest to some, here are a couple of pictures of Pratt Street in Camden Town, North London close to where I live.

Stephenson's 'pseudo detective' pal who he met in a pub on Upper St Martins Lane lived on this street at #24 (since demolished). Another strange coincidence here, like the Dr Davies of Davis Ward who lived on a Castle Street the same as Stephenson, is the fact that the only pub on Pratt Street is called the St Martins Tavern.

Hi Mike

Within a year it will probably be 'St Martins Apartments' containing loads of pokey flats selling for 500,000 each. I kid you not.

Stephenson died in 1916 (a fact discovered by Chris Scott) and his address was given as 129 St Johns Road, Islington which was a Workhouse. It was built in 1867 and demolished in 1972. St Johns Road is now called St Johns Way and runs eastward from Archway underground station in North London. As it's not too far from where I live I decided to go there today and see if anything interesting remained of the site. Check the building to the right of the Workhouse in this old print.

Here it is today. The Workhouse would have been behind the trees on the left.

Wow thanks for posting these Stephen, How Brown posted some links which contained contempory photo's over on jtrforums.com, they were quite eerie, and, I believe, dated the year after Stephenson passed away!

Thanks Mike

Howard's links are a bit hard to find as they are not on a Stephenson thread.

Here they are.....

Hi All
New to the forums as when googling 119 Houndsditch I was directed to this page and website.
I am unsure if this post needs to be in a new thread but will go with the flow......
Has anyone come across any other photos / pictures of 119 Houndsditch because while doing some family history I have found out that my 2nd Great Grandfather owned the shop \o/ around the 1851 period until his death in 1859, his wife kepted it on then had to eventually sell it to Harris.

I know it's not Ripperish but i have to try all avenues
