Yes, one that springs to mind is the "sewer gas" lamp behind the Savoy Hotel, that features in the James Mason 1967 film "The London Nobody Knows". It was still there when I passed through nearby Embankment Gardens a couple of years back, complete with the gas mantles etc.

Default Speaker announcement

We're delighted to announce details of our first speaker for the Jack the Ripper East End Conference taking place this coming August:

Mark Ripper:
THE TRIAL OF ISRAEL LIPSKI

The 130th anniversary of the murder of Miriam Angel by Israel Lipski provides an opportunity to re-evaluate this awful crime. Did the social forces operating on the East End in 1887 – including some with which we are still very familiar, such as immigration, prejudice and fake news – cause Lipski to offend?

Or was he a man apart, resorting to murder in spite of, rather than because of, the environment in which he existed?

Mark Ripper’s talk reconsiders the evidence for Lipski’s guilt, and explores a possible hidden motive for the murder, unnoticed by the lawyers who defended him.

We hope that the talk will also mark the return of an old friend, not seen since the late 1950s…

Writing under the name M W Oldridge, MARK RIPPER is the author of WHITECHAPEL AND DISTRICT (2011) and THE MOAT FARM MYSTERY: THE LIFE AND CRIMINAL CAREER OF SAMUEL HERBERT DOUGAL (2012), and is co-author of THE A-Z OF VICTORIAN CRIME with Neil R A Bell, Trevor Bond and Kate Clarke (2016).

------------------------

Information on the talks from our other speakers will be announced soon, and we'll also be revealing our final speakers and other events!

Places are going very fast for this event, so if you have yet to secure your place by paying a deposit please visit www.ripconference.com

Cheers Adam, here's hoping that "old friend" from the 1950s will be making an appearance! ;-)

I've already set up a permanent thread in Ripper Media for Mark Ripper's books.....I'll mention them here :

http://www.jtrforums.com/showthread....095#post317095


Good time to mention Mark's books as he will be speaking this year at the London Ripper Convention :


List of books which Mark Ripper has authored :


Whitechapel And District ( 2011 )

Jack the Ripper's brutal murders have left an ineradicable stain on the gloomy streets of Whitechapel and surrounding area. Disturbingly, his infamous butchery was

just one of many equally deplorable atrocities committed in the area, which collectively cast a shadow over the history of London's East End and shocked the nation

as a whole. Cases featured here include that of Henry Wainwright, tried in 1875 for the murder and dismemberment of his mistress, Harriet Lane; Polish-born Israel

Liipski, charged with the murder of fellow lodger Miriam Angel in 1887; Myer Abramovitch, executed on 6 March 1912 for the gruesome double murder of Mr and

Mrs Milstein at their home at Hanbury Street in 1911; and Harold Hall, who savagely murdered Kitty Roman with a penknife at Miller's Court, Whitechapel in 1909,

within sight of the room where Jack the Ripper's final victim, Mary Kelly, was killed.

+district

************************************************** ***********************


The Moat Farm Mystery: The Life And Criminal Careeer Of Samuel Herbert Dougal ( 2012 )

Samuel Herbert Dougal was intelligent, talented, and the recipient of a military medal. Outwardly, he seemed to embody all that Victorian England valued most. But

he was also a career criminal whose appetite for sex and money propelled him through scandal after scandal; through the courts, prisons and asylums; and from

woman to vulnerable woman. In 1903, the unexplained disappearance of Dougal's latest inamorata, a wealthy spinster named Miss Holland, began to excite public

speculation. A tireless hunt for the missing lady commenced, but, having been arrested on a simple charge of forgery, Dougal simply decided to wait it out.

Meanwhile, on the outside, his real wife, Sarah, who had been the beneficiary of Dougal's schemes over the course of a decade, had her own plans to escape official

scrutiny. Would Miss Holland's whereabouts be discovered? And who, if anyone, would be held to account for her disappearance?

************************************************** ***********************

The A To Z Of Victorian Crime ( 2016 )

Few things are more evocative of Victorian Britain than its criminals; they are, together with railways, gas lamps and swirling fog, vital ingredients in any Victorian

melodrama. The truth, however, was often stranger, more thrilling and more horrifying than fiction.

In this book, four eminent crime historians reveal the realities of this aspect of Victorian life, illuminating not just the criminals and their victims, but also the

policemen, forensic scientists and others who rubbed shoulders with the nineteenth-century underworld. Notorious crimes – the Road Hill Murder, the Balham

Mystery and Jack the Ripper – stand alongside long-forgotten, neglected cases; the most shocking and terrifying cases appear next to everyday horrors, some

stunning and some merely sad. This unique work of reference deserves a place on every true crime reader’s bookshelf.
