Historical Background:

Jack The Ripper


31st August -- Mary Nichols (1845-88) was the first acknowledged Ripper victim, killed at approximately 3.40 am. Her throat cut and her body mutilated, she was discovered in Bucks Row by PC John Neil.

8th September -- Annie Chapman (1841-88) was found shortly before 6.00 am in the backyard of 29 Hanbury Street. Her throat had been savagely cut and some of her inner organs removed from her abdomen in a manner which at that time people thought suggested that her attacker had anatomical knowledge.

30 September -- Elizabeth Stride's (1843-88) body was discovered at 1.00 am when Louis Diemschutz turned into the yard behind 40 Berner Street. Her throat had been cut so recently, that it was felt that the Ripper had been disturbed during his bloody attack.

30 September -- Catherine Eddowes's (1842-88) corpse was found less than an hour after Elizabeth Stride's, in Mitre Square. She was savagely cut around the face and abdomen. Like Annie Chapman, some of her internal organs had been removed.

9 November -- Mary Kelly (1863-88) was murdered in her lodgings at 13 Miller's Court sometime after 4 am. The most savage attack yet, her entire body was horribly mutilated, her face hacked beyond recognition.
