  • Sadler's Shop 1891

    Bruce Collie spotted this on British television

    James Thomas Sadler was arrested for the murder of Frances Coles in February 1891. Many thought they had caught the Whitechapel Murderer, this was also reflected in the press.
    He would be released a free man after the Inquest, and sued the press, winning damages.
    In May 1891 he purchased a shop and the accommodation above, at 121 Danbrook Road, with the proceeds. It seems to have been a success, and Sadler and his wife Sarah lived and worked here for sometime.
    While watching television last night, the latest NHS advert was played, and 15 seconds in the shop and accommodation are featured.
