Dr Crippen Lived Here
This is where infamous wife murderer Dr Crippen lived.
Location: 34-37 Store Street, Bloomsbury
Description: When Dr. Crippen returned to London from Philadelphia, he and his wife lived here at 34-37 Store Street.
Crippen, who was small in height, left Munyonís Homeopathic Remedies for a variety of jobs. Some of them failed, and presently he eventually returned to Munyonís, who had relocated to Albion House, New Oxford Street.
Dr Crippen would later kill his wife in Holloway and try to escape on a ship across the Atlantic to Ontario. The ship received notice of this and he was arrested and subsequently hanged.
