A mixture of accurate and inaccurate information - nothing new there - but the description of the building and yard is more detailed than most and includes reference to the rusty padlock on the shed door being broken (Richardson?) and a supposed sighting of "the murdered woman" with a man presumed to be her killer in "The Bells on Brick Lane". Does anyone know if there was such a place?
