    That’s a great website, Rob. thanks����

    The Millwall kids singing brought a lump to my throat. It was recorded in 1938. Two years later, the area was heavily blitzed.

    The Bishopsgate Institute sells a CD of old Eastenders reminiscing. They also have recordings of Arthur Harding being interviewed by Raphael Samuel. You have to take your own CD player to listen to them.

    Yes, unfortunately archives don’t always contain what we’d like, but even administrative material could be interesting to us all, I believe.

    Correspondence books might shed some light on what group of lodgers were generally there, for instance, or letters from police might show how transients were tracked. Or minutes of meeting might show if the Ripper-scare factored into the institution’s business.

    At any rate, great if you could look it up, Gary, if it hasn’t been scoured already I’m sure there’s an article in it
    If there’s not an avalanche of Ripper old-timers claiming to have already done so, I’ll drop them a line and see how the land lies. It is south of the river, though, so I may have to top up my jabs.

    Allegedly!

    They say that unfortunately they have no ledgers of lodgers. There are some papers relating to policy, minutes of meetings etc, possibly including info on nightly closing times. The archivist recommends emailing them. There's no charge for an initial enquiry.


    PLEASE NOTE : jellied eels not to be consumed on the premises.
    Robert,

    Were you being deliberately alliterative?

    In responding on Casebook I mentioned the archive from the Victoria Home where Hutchinson stayed.

    I presumed that someone has gone through it, but I’ve searched here and there and can’t find any references about it.

    Does anyone know whether it’s been looked through? It’s at the Salvation Army heritage center https://www.salvationarmy.org.uk/int...eritage-centre

    The archive is listed as having material from Victoria Home 1860-1919. It might only be administrative letters. But perhaps also ledgers of lodgers? Such ledgers often contain additional names, birthdates, place of origin etc.

    Anyway, I assumed it’s been combed through, but does anyone know?
    I don’t know, Kattrup, but if no-one has, I’ll be glad to go along and have a look.

    Thanks for pointing it out!
