    Hi Monty

    Another possible test of eyewitness testimony might be to ask people after a tour to accurately describe the tour guide. Give them a questionnaire in a sealed envelope at the end of your tour and ask them not to not open it for a day. The questionnaire could serve the double function of having the people rate the tour which might be useful if you don't already do it, as well as coming up with a description of you and maybe others that they encountered during the tour.

    All the best

    Chris

    This could be my major achievement in life - modifying the tours of the one of the foremost Ripper tour guides!

    Remember though, even if you are actively observing for future recall it is still very likely that errors can creep in.

    I'm a bit of both Tom!

    I spoke about problems facing the accuracy of eyewitness testimony. Even had a practical demonstration in which I had people remember a black guy as being white and a majority of delegates give a false suspect identification.

    All I did was interpret and present the research of others - they did the hard work! I just applied it to the Ripper case.

    I think I messed up the pics of Tenter St, Neil so if you are in that area in the near future would you mind getting me a couple of shots please?

    (my phone decided to pack up the minute I arrived back home and a lot of pics on the memory card were corrupted)

    Here's one that survived...

    As far as I can make out, Grainger's attack in 1895 occurred close to the first turning on the left - the street looks shorter than it appears on 1888 maps

    ... they can also have a deleterious effect on conference-goers, too, Neems. As I found to my cost... no, pleasure

    Your talk was my favourite one as I think it suited my preferences for such information but the delivery was certainly excellent and I was rivetted throughout
    Rosie the Rivetter, make way for Big Jon the Rivetter.
