Ripper signage around Whitechapel

Around at least 4 of Jack the Ripper's murder sites in London's East End are stencilled signs in white paint commemorating the spots where the murders took place.

The first of these signs is at Bucks Row (now Durward Street) just north of the Whitechapel Railway Station, marking the spot where Mary Ann "Polly" Nichols was murdered on 31 August 1888. The sign reads simply: "
Mary Ann Nichols Row 1845 - 1888".

A few minutes away in Hanbury Street is a similar memorial to Annie Chapman who died there on 8 September 1888. Her memorial reads: "Annie Chapman Street 1840 -1888".

Just within the One Square Mile of the City of London in Mitre Square is a tribute to Catherine Eddowes who perished there on the night of 30 September 1888. Her simple stencilled plaque reads: "Catherine Eddowes Square 1842 -1888".

The final victim was Mary Jane Kelly of 13 Miller's Court off Dorset Street who was brutally slaughtered on 9 November 1888 and whose epitaph at the scene read simply: " Mary Jane Kelly's Court 1863 - 1888".
