Regular newsletter subscribers have the chance to score a prize package by guessing the reason for this irregular edition, dated Friday, August 31. The main clue is the article's subject matter: a review of the the most celebrated of London, England's Jack the Ripper Walking Tours.
You may have been a winner if you guessed that today, August 31, is the anniversary date of the murder of Mary Ann (Polly) Nichols, believed to be the first victim of the notorious Whitechapel killer (a.k.a. Jack the Ripper).
Last February my wife & I did the tour, hosted by world famous Ripperologist and author of The Complete Jack the Ripper, Donald Rumbelow [pictured, left]. Little did I know then that I was doing research for an article. Always pays to take notes and photos.http://www.londonwalks.com/
