5.0 out of 5 stars The London of Jack the Ripper: Then and Now, 24 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The London of Jack the Ripper: Then and Now (Kindle Edition)
I have read a few books about Jack the Ripper now and so this little volume was too good to miss. Written by two extremely knowledgeable guides and researchers, it contains photographs of the crime scenes for all the possible victims of the Ripper, many of which were taken in the early sixties by the amateur criminologist John Gordon Whitby, before urban development plans and slum clearance finished what World War II had already devastated. The early photos give you a real sense of what the places must have looked like during the Victorian times and, side by side, is a photo of how the location looks now, making it easy to find should you want to do so. There is also a basic summary of each murder - where and how it happened and whether the victim is generally seen as a possible or probable Ripper attack. The authors have listed locations for not only the widely accepted victims, such as Annie Chapman and Catherine Stride, but have also mentioned Martha Tabram, Ada Wilson, etc and any other in, or close to, the location of Whitechapel whose cases have been discussed in other Ripper books. As a book it is also of interest to anyone who wishes to study the area of Whitechapel, or the East End of London, and how the area has changed. For Ripperologists, it is essential reading and a great reference book.
