Howard, I've asked this question elsewhere but is the Chapman wedding photo a fake? I've gotten a bit out of touch in recent years and so believed that it was genuine. I knew the others were fakes as I told the owner of the ripper museum. Unsurprisingly he left the room rather quickly!

So....if you encounter one on the Internet, remember.......its a fake.

Hi How,

These victim photos are (in all likelihood) fraudulent and have been floating about the internet for some considerable time, presumably posted by malcontents and mischief-makers, or dupes.

My regards,

Sean.

Question The Stride picture in the OP.

Hi All

Sometime ago I compared the Stride picture in the OP with the accepted post-mortem picture of Stride and I thought I saw similarties with the face and body. Hence I had (and have) an open mind about this early picture being/not being Stride.

How sure are people that is definitely not genuine and what are the supporting evidence to discount it?

Is is just a lack of provenance, dubious provenance, or is there definite reasons to totally disregard it?

Martyn

Howdy

I would discount it because:

1. it has only appeared as a Stride photo since 2014 or so

2. any discovery of a stride photo with any kind of credibility would have appeared with a bit more fanfare

3. the sites it does appear on are in the main fairly lame murder type sites with no real ripper credentials.

4. its origin seems to have been on a site called virtualwhitechapel.com which is now possibly defunct

5. this photo also appears on sites where other known fakes of other victims are presented

6. its not that it has no provenance......but it has never been really put forward as an actual photo for consideration?

Also, Martyn, it's worth repeating what Paul Begg mentioned elsewhere-that the supposed photograph of Stride was the subject of research and an excellent article in Ripperologist magazine by Daniel Olsson and totally discredited as a genuine photograph of Elizabeth Stride in life.
