Ripper Murder of Mary Ann Nichol

First victim of the Whitechapel Ripper was found dying here.

Location: Durward Street, Whitechapel

Description: The body of the Ripper's generally agreed first victim Polly is found in the early hours of Friday, August 31, 1888. She was found still breathing but suffering from multiple wounds & incisions, across from Essex Wharf (warehouse) and Brown and Eagle Wool Warehouse and Schneiders Cap Factory in a gateway entrance to an old stableyard between a board school (to the west) and terrace houses (cottages) belonging to better class tradesmen. An apparition of a glowing woman has been seen here laying in the gutter, thought to be a haunting scene of the murder.
