    The 1891 Census for the Victoria Home is available. That's the one that has James T. Sadler living there. I looked through all the records and could not find Hutch in there, though. I think there are some 400 names recorded. Charles William Mowl was the keeper. Maybe searching him can find some fruit?
    Thanks, Jerry. Did you see the photo Kattrup posted of the group of Danish Tourists outside the Home? Iím not sure he found an explicit reference to their staying at the Home, but the photo implies so. They looked very respectable - a million miles from the types you would have found in Dorset Street.

        You can get into the VH for 1901 by searching for Harry Gatling - that old son of a gun - aged c29.

          Did he have a brother named Tommy?

                    In the new Ripperologist #164, Stephen Senise has an article about George Hutchinson's signatures.



                    I noticed it starts off with him mentioning him and his daughter "tracking down and viewing the Victoria Home file at the Salvation Army Heritage Centre (William Booth College) near Peckham, in November 2016."


                    Apparently there is some mention of it in his book Jewbaiter Jack the Ripper.

                      The William Booth College is in Camberwell, at the top of Dog Kennel Hill. Near Peckham but not in it...
