The JTR 130 Tour #4

by

Mitre Square, just off Aldgate High Street, where Catherine Eddowes was slain, is the only site to have its own, albeit unofficial, memorial. This is ‘Ripper Corner’, and it's marked by a bench at roughly the spot Eddowes was found.

Today the square’s still an enclosed space of office buildings and a school.

Jack took his time and did a job on Eddowes, as the PM photographs show.
On the tour I attended the guide was describing Eddowes’ injuries when an American tourist turned green and had to be led away.

There’s collateral damage like this on every Ripper tour….
