Synopsis

The London of Jack the Ripper: Then and Now' is a photographic journey through the London of Jack the Ripper as it was when he stalked the mean streets and alleyways of the Capital.

Robert Clack and Philip Hutchinson take the reader on a step-by-step tour of the crime scenes, giving a detailed history of the victims, the crimes and the police investigation.

Using many previously unpublished photographs and illustrations, the authors put the reader on the very streets that Jack walked, showing the crime scenes, the victims homes, the common lodging houses and the public houses. They show readers how to retrace the steps the victims took, pointing out the changes to that particular area and when those changes occurred.

Using contemporary documents and police files the authors trace the history of all 11 Whitechapel murders from 1888 to 1891 and discuss other contemporary attacks that may well have been by the same hand.

The book will not only be of interest to Ripperologists, but also to those who are interested in the history of London and the East End of London in particular.

Great true crime
May 5th, 2015
This is one of the best Ripper books I have read, and I have read a few! With great photos of the crime scenes to compare in different time periods, the reader can be transported back in time. Alongside of the pictures is a succinct and uncompromising account of each murder.

One of the more interesting books I've read about Jack the Ripper, the author used facts and drew no conclusions about who he was, the pictures made the story more interesting?
