Compared to Durward Street, Hanbury Street is a thoroughfare of activity with its restaurants, tailors and numerous coffee shops.
It intersects Commercial Street with the old police station opposite, as it was in 1888.
It’s swings and roundabouts, though. JTR would recognise this as the same narrow street where he despatched Annie Chapman using his trademark combo of cut throat and ripped abdomen (he made off with the uterus), but the actual location of the deed, No. 29, is gone. Demolished.
Today it’s a brewery courtyard.
The buildings opposite are contemporary; squint and you can almost imagine Jack scurrying past....
