Jack the Ripper

The Jack the Ripper crimes are one of history’s greatest murder mysteries. They inspire visions of a black figure at midnight, stalking gas-lit streets shrouded in fog as he cuts down the female population of East London one by one.

That is the image. The reality was the murder of several tragic women and the hypocrisy it spawned, cast out to be buffeted by the cruel winds of poverty until they were driven under a murderer’s knife.
