A fish'n'chip shop in London's East End has had a traditional makeover and been turned into an historic memorial to the victims of Jack the Ripper—at the spot where the Victorian serial killer taunted police with a message chalked on a wall. Scotland Yard historian Lindsay Siviter was invited by the Whitechapel Society to unveil a plaque on the wall of Happy Days restaurant in Goulston Street where the Ripper is known to have scrawled graffiti on the night of two of his killings on September 30, 1888. The restaurant is part of an old block of flats, one of the few remaining buildings still surviving from that era. It is built over what used to be the entrance to Wentworth Dwellings, where the Ripper dumped an apron belonging to one of his victims that night, before daubing his macabre message. “This doorway is special—its where Jack the Ripper is known to have been after the murders,” Lindsay explained. The restaurant refit by owner Michael Papastavrou includes a representation of the words the Ripper scrawled on the wall, in handwriting close to the style of the time, placed on the spot where the dwelling entrance once stood, now part of his chippie.
