There are no memorials to the five victims of Jack the Ripper in the East End. But there's little danger of the sites being fogotten. Each year, thousands take a tour of the little-changed back streets where the Ripper persued his grizzly hobby.
Over the weekend (we think), dedications have appeared on the walls of at least two of these sites. Hanbury Street has gained a stenciled memorial to Annie Chapman. The Corporation car park covering the site of Mary Kelly's demise has also been marked. We also checked Mitre Square, where the body of Catherine Eddowes was discovered, but found no dedication. Has anyone spotted similar graffiti down Henrique Street and Durward Street?
