COVER ILLUSTRATION: Commercial Street ©Adam Wood. This famous photograph shows the Britannia on the left and the Ten Bells on the right. Above the door of the Britannia is a header board giving the name of the landlord; ĎG Williamsí. This enables us to date the photo to 1905/08, that being the duration of George Williamsí stay as landlord.
QUOTE OF THE MONTH:
ďIf Iím Jack the Ripper, and you know Iím Jack the Ripper, and you know I killed women, how are you going to stop me from carrying these weapons? Are you going to ask around for a global test and then come up to and ask to inspect me? Sure, wait a minute, let me move this knife, now look in that pocket. The only way youíre going to stop Jack the Ripper is if you put the handcuffs on him and take him to jail. Thatís what we did.Ē Tomas Ojeda, a Pro-Bush supporter, likening Saddam Hussein to Jack the Ripper when justifying the US invasion of Iraq. (GrandValleyLanthorn, 29 October 2004)
