    It's a small world. But that means we should be able to get an expert opinion on whether Ruchous is a plausible phonetic rendering of Raciaz!
    My source believes it to be a good rendering if one is trying to pronounce Raciaz in English.

        There were still a handful of brothels there in 1887:

        13
        20
        21
        22
        30

        According to Booth’s researcher, ‘Formerly a very bad street known as Tiger Bay. The Jews have gradually ousted the old inhabitants and the place is more respectable.’

        Stride apparently had a friend who lived in ‘Tiger Bay’ (probably Brunswick Street), an ex-prostitute who then cleaned the rooms of prostitutes.
        For Brunswick Street, I have a Goad map to hand that shows the numbers went from 1 to 18 from the north to the south end on the west side. I assume the higher numbers went back up the other side rather than coming down again. For Ellen Street I counted even numbers along the south side from the west end (based on the directory). So I think the positions are at least approximately right.

        [Edit: I just realised I have a later map showing the position of 19 Brunswick Street, so the Brunswick Street ones are correct.]

          • Major Henry Smith described a witness he interviewed as a sort of "hybrid German." Presumably this was a witness in one of the double event murders, although the identity remains questionable.

            • RL Stevenson's cousin,who no doubt supplied much of the information for "Strange Case of Dr J and Mr H",based on Henry Gawen Sutton's hypocrisy.
              Same guy who had Sutton examine Eddowes' kidney.

              Smith took a particular interest in Joseph Lawende.

                His account confuses some of the details (which police reminiscences don't?) but I really don't think there's any doubt he's talking about Lawende.
