From Ripper to Stripper. A Psychogeographical walk around the City and East End.

Stewart Home remaps the 1960s London 'nude murders' attributed to the uncaught Jack The Stripper, onto an earlier series of sex killings of prostitutes, the Victorian Jack The Ripper murders. Since the locations at which the bodies were found (and these are not in all instances the actual murder sites) have change dramatically since the killings, it seems reasonable to treat the sites of one series of murders as belonging to the other. This is about historical resonance and the difficulties of physically revisiting the past, rather than historical accuracy.
