Old newspapers laid out side by side.

FOLLOW THE MURDERS IN THE VICTORIAN PRESS

The Jack the Ripper murders generated a huge amount of press coverage.

Indeed, it is possible to follow the crimes in the Victorian newspapers as they unfolded from August, 1888, through to February, 1891.

In so doing you are able to build up a picture of how the Whitechapel atrocities impacted on society as a a whole and on the East End of London in particular.

Our press cuttings library, presents you with the newspaper accounts that followed each one of the crimes. By reading them you get the full feel of what it felt like to be around as news of each murder broke, and the people of 19th century England began to react to the dreadful and horrific mystery that held an entire nation in its grip for a sustained period of time in the closing decades of the century.

Indeed, these accounts are the closest we can get today to travelling back to the age of Jack the Ripper.
