Brick Lane

Brick Lane, whilst not particularly significant to the murders, is a busy thoroughfare running south from Bethnal Green Road to Whitechapel High Street, almost parallel to Commercial Street. Brick Lane is known for its street market, and quite possibly may have been traversed by many an East End prostitute during the 1880s. Brick Lane in 1999 was the target of a bomb, detonated as an act of intolerance against the races of people living and working in the area. The same bomber also detonated bombs at Brixton and Soho.
