    I'm sorry,this is obviously a fake Rob Clack. There's no carrier bag in sight and he's even carrying a man bag? Nah, can't be.

      But note the camera. He probably carries that at all times the way Jimi Hendrix carried his guitar.

        My sister got me the man bag, so I have no choice but to use it

          Bit of a bad shot of the Blind Beggar bar - I have a better pic of it on my phone

          George Cornell was shot at the open bit of the bar on the left

          Most people got pics of the McCarthy graves but on the same row were graves for a Donovan family and this one of Cooneys

          The two rows of graves behind these consisted of those of various clergymen so perhaps the rows represented certain occupations, these being of lodging house keepers

            On Saturday night in the White Hart pub the landlord kindly allowed some of us into the cellar to see the original room which George Chapman used as a barber shop - this is the precarious entrance into the cellar

            Stepping out of the side door of the White Hart into an alleyway you immediately see this sign for the next door premises - check out the phone number!

            The original sign from the Ten Bells/JtR pub which I remember from my visit in 1976 (I was only 13 and had sidled away from a school trip to have a pint - naughty boy - God knows how I had ended up in Spitalfields as the school trip was to Baker St)

              Greg and the other PC's looked superb in their uniforms

              Greg had gathered the items and clothes together himself - well done Greg

              I do some artwork myself and I will use some of the lantern shots for inspiration

              The actors were excellent and extremely entertaining

              I particularly enjoyed the Champagne Charlie song from "Inspector Abberline" and the mystic and magical "Esmerelda" which were part of the Saturday evening Victorian music hall entertainment

              The shots in the pub which Chris posted from Jon are of Abberline accosting and assaulting Joe Barnett in the pub, accusing him of being the Ripper but realising he had no evidence to arrest him

                    Jon can confirm this but it looks as if they may have been recreating the inquest on Mary Jane Kelly.
                    This was actually a fictional play in which Abberline confronted Barnett and accuses him of being the killer a day or two after the Kelly murder. Some criticised this for deviating from established fact (especially as it shows Abberline dishing out a beating to Barnett) but I think they were trying to show the grief and desperation. Barnett is drunk and overcome with grief and blames everything on Abberline failing to capture the killer. Abberline is driven to the brink because of his failure.

                    As I said, not based on fact - but not hard to imagine that these feelings may have been present.

                          This was me teasing any delegates who may have been reading my Twitter/Facebook about what would happen yesterday. What no one but a select few knew was that my talk wasn't just happening on the sunday - it had in fact begun the day before.


                          When leaving Shoreditch Town Hall on the Saturday the delegates walk past a man and a woman are having an argument in the street. These were a pair of actors we had hired and instructed to have an argument - enough to catch attention, but not enough for people to take much notice (I wanted to basically recreate circumstances surrounding a Ripper witness sighting).

                          When arriving at the venue on Sunday the delegates are asked to fill in witness statement about the event on the Saturday.

                          Later the talk and results of the demonstration were presented. About 1/3 of delegates had witnessed enough of the event to complete a description. Out of these 1/4 got the mans race wrong. The majority had his height wrong. They all claimed to have seen his hair colour and length - despite the fact he was wearing a hood and a hat so you couldn't actually see his hair...

                                Fascinating, Jon. What a brilliant plan to demonstrate the pitfalls of eyewitness testimony!
