General Information

 

On the Cover

A typical pub scene in the late 19th Century from an engraving by John Leech.
Is that Mrs Ringer behind the bar at the Britannia? Or perhaps Mrs Fiddymont at the Albert?
I
t is plain, from the black eye on the lady to the right, that Liz Stride was not the only woman

in Spitaifields to be batteredl And is it gin the woman is feeding her baby to hasten sleep?

The children are probably tasting beer sent for by their father, though this practice

was outlawed in 1901 by the 'Child Messenger Act' which prohibited sales

of uncorked or sealed alcohol to any children under the age of 14.
