    Mrs Long's route

    Personally, I cannot understand why Mrs Long went out of her house, into Brick Lane, then Hanbury Street. She could easily have gone from her house to Commercial St then to Spitalfields Market, if she did indeed live in Church Street, Whitechapel.


    The other Church Street and Row are in Bethnal Green and, I cannot imagine it being here as where she lived.


    Why would anyone go out of their way to walk a route that will take longer, when you could have save half the time? Unless you do have time on your hands.


    Still, maybe we will never know why Mrs Long took this route.

      I thought a census had been located for her and/or her husband living in Church Row, Bethnal Green?
      I could be wrong, so much has been debated on her address in the past, I should look it up myself.
