St. Botolph's Church

St. Botolph's Church

Above: St. Botolph's Church, on Aldgate High Street. This church was known as the prostitutes' church, because the ladies would walk around it in order to attract clients (it was against the law to stand in one place and solicit). It was in this area that Catherine Eddowes was seen drunk the night of her murder. Photograph courtesy of Mr. John Smithkey III.
