Jack The Ripper Fact-Fridays

The day that probable victim, Elizabeth Stride was murdered, Dr. Barnardo visited the lodging house where she lived. He had taken to street preaching and talked to the women and girls about saving the children from common lodging houses and the street. He said that the girls and women were, “thoroughly frightened” and one woman mentioned how no one cared about a prostitute’s safety.
Upon seeing Elizabeth Stride’s body, he immediately recognized her as one of the women from the lodging house, earlier that day.
