Jack the Ripper
Who was Jack the Ripper? There have been numerous attempts to uncover the identity of the man who brutally murdered five East End women between 31 August - 30 November 1888. Amongst those suspected were Queen Victoria's heir, the Duke of Clarence. A less prominent suspect was George Chapman, a barber/surgeon, who at the time lived in the cellar of this pub. He was later found guilty of poisoning his three wives for which he was hung. Was he also Jack the Ripper?
