Default Rings from a black man

Hello Curious,

Sorry this took so long. The reference to Annie buying rings "from a black man" can be found in Sugdens "The Complete History of JTR", paperback, page 93.

Cheers,
C4

Default "Posh" Jack

Hello Ben,

Well, having surgical skills wouldn´t necessarily mean you were dressed up to the nines. Also some slummers and do-gooders would dress down while visiting the East End - not into vermin-ridden rags, of course, but something less elegant than they usually wore. Although, skimming through the press reports, I came across a report in the Evening Standard of 11 Sept. 1888 of an 80-year-old man having his gold watch and chain stolen by a gang in Hanbury Street, so presumably some people were better-dressed than others.

Best wishes,
C4
