Thanks for all the help and contacts that you have sent me. We have already started filming and have created an excellent team thanks to your help.
We are currently building a virtual reality model of Millers Court. My model maker has already gained much information, again largely thanks to this site.
However there are cirtain details that we have been unable to obtain. Does anyone have specific ifo on the following?
1. The fire place in Kelly's bedroom. Aslo any other details about fixtures fittings etc. (sorry to sound like an estate agent)
2. Details about the gas light outside her door.
3. Details about the Dustbin, pump or drainage in the court yard.
4. If the walls were white washed up to first level at the time of the murder.
5. Any other facts or specific details about the site beyond what is listed on this site.
Hoping to create the most accurate reconstructions of the murder sites to date, so any help most greatfully received. hope eventually to make them generally available.
Yours Jeff Leahy

I have been unable to establish the origin of the drawing - it featured in a UK true crime documentary about the Whitechapel murders. I wrote to the TV company to see if they could let me know where the drawing came from but never received a reply!

Thanks for that! Why am I not surprised about your lack of reply!It's remarkable how spacious that 12x 12 room looks isn't it!!

Hi Chris, all,
An interesting drawing, although I feel that the room looks a bit large and -- as Suzi says -- spacious. Miller's Court 13 must have been a much more narrow and confined space. The artist has apparently not gotten the perspective quite right; I would say that the fireplace should be slightly closer to the bed and larger. The room also looks a bit too wide, with too much space between the windows (not seen in the picture) and the wall with the bed.
All the best
