            • How, I wanted to just put 'yes' but your site said the message was too short.

                  Does Sadler count? I can't recall if the paper called him JTR or not. Same with Pizer. But they called him Leather Apron.

                  • Ah, How, you never asked who or when. You only asked whether. And the answer is obviously yes, because you couldn't possibly know enough to be able to say never.

                          Cable Street has been mentioned quite a lot in the month of August.....primarily for the establishment of a Jack The Ripper Museum and the battle fought there back in 1936 between left and right wingers....

                          However....Cable Street also has a link to a couple of murders committed some 7 decades before the Whitechapel Murders. One of its local businesses contained a relic from those murders.
                          What was the name of those murders....the relic...and the name of the business ?

                          • This must be the Ratcliff Highway murders, for which John Williams was executed, and whose corpse was paraded through town on a horse and cart. He was eventually buried under a crossroads outside a Cable St pub (the Peartree?), with a stake driven through his heart. Did the pub put the stake on display, or something?

                              The pub did have a relic.....what was the pub's name and what was the relic ?

                                I take it that the relic wasn't the stake, and the pub wasn't the "Peartree" then? Hmmm... It's been a while since I read the book, so I guess I'll have to dig it out
