The map of Jack the Ripper's London shows the locations of many of the places associated with the Whitechapel Murders.
Looking at the murder sites today the first thing that strikes you is the smallness of the locality in which the murders occurred.
However, it should also be remembered that in 1888 the area was made up of lots of narrow, unlit alleyways and passageways and it was the labyrinth-like layout of the area that enabled jack the Ripper to commit his crimes and then melt away into the night.
