    Isn't it odd to see someone completely clean shaven in 1892!

      Hello Debs, lovely photo.. well played!

      As my eyes are very dodgy... have you managed to make out the number on the policeman's collar by chance?

        Great photo Debs!

        The left collar looks like 183 Phil, but Debs might have a clearer picture?

              Thanks Phil and Bella.
              I'm not too good on this collar number lark myself. It isn't much clearer when I zoom in to the picture either.

                As always, great stuff Debs !
                Thanks very much for the photos...and it is unusual to see men clean shaven back in that time.

                  I wonder if Paul Augustus Martin was the photographer?

                  One Joseph Martin was the official photographer to the Metropolitan Police at the time of the murders.

                    If it is only a number he will be a City constable.
                    A Metropolitan officer's ID consists of a letter (A-Y), followed by his number.

                      Yes, he was the photographer of both pictures, Jon. I did also see a whole series of fairground pictures by a Paul Martin but don't know if it was the same man.

                        Thanks, How. The police of the era seem to have been particularly fond of facial hair, so this one stands out, not having any.

                          Hot food



                          "A View of a Food Stall at a Fairground, Taken by Paul Martin [1864-1944], in about 1898. The Man in the Centre May Be Looking after a Hot Fat Frier, Perhaps for Making Chips. Fairground Swingboats Are Visible through the Trees in the Background. This Is One of a Series of Photographs Taken by Paul Martin at a Fair, Probably in One of the London Parks. Paul Martin Is Regarded as a Pioneer of Photo Journalism. In 1892 He Bought a 'Facile' - a Popular Hand Camera Made by Fallowfield of London. With His Camera Disguised as a Leather Case, He Was Able to Work Unobserved, Taking the Candid Photographs of Daily Life Which Are Recognised as His Greatest Work. Kodak Collection / Science & Society Picture Library. Photographer: Paul Martin."

                            I can almost smell the frying fish, Debs.
                            Today is typically 'MJK meal day', around these here parts, when Nina fries up fish and makes her version of chips( great,by the way). I'm ready to chow down now !
