Ha. Love it. Particularly the very dry humour of the text.

I was just looking at the case of Fowler and Millsom and it says...

"Now that they were aware that it was Milsom whom they wanted, and that Fowler was missing as well, the police started a manhunt. It eventually turned out that the men were together in a small travelling waxworks that journeyed to fairs around the country, with Fowler acting as the strong man in the circus"

There are a num,ber of aspects of the case worth a read...

Phil:

I'll keep my eye out. I know there were a couple of incidents which broke out on Guy Fawkes Day back in the early 1890's...when effigies of Mrs. Maybrick and JTR were featured.
