The JTR 130 Tour #3


There’s not a great deal to see today in Berner Street, running off Commercial Road in Whitechapel. It was renamed Henriques Street in the wake of the murders. Like today’s nimbies, the Victorians didn’t take to crazed serial killers depreciating their property prices.

Dutfield’s Yard, the actual location of Elizabeth Stride’s murder, is now somewhere in a school playground.

'Long Liz' Stride was the first victim Jack ‘did’ that night. Her throat was cut, but the trademark mutilations weren’t as extensive. Perhaps Jack was interrupted and had to flee the scene.

Anyhow, the Ripper’s next date was in Mitre Square….
