Over the years we’ve received some great questions from our clients on the Jack the Ripper Tour. Indeed, one of the great things about what we do is that people from all walks of life have an interest in the subject and a lot of people know something, if not a great deal, about the case.
But we also get enquiries for information from people who can’t get to London to partake in our walk around Jack the Ripper’s London.
Whereas when a question is asked on the tour the guide can address the answer to the whole group, replying to a single enquiry by email means that just that person gets the benefit of the answer.
We’re living in an age of social media and the like of Facebook, Twitter and Google+ have made it easier than ever for interaction on a scale that could, previously, only be dreamt of.
So, we’re now utilising all this to offer a great new resource. If you have any questions about the Jack the Ripper case, or on the history of the East End inn general, then zoom on over to our Facebook Page, our Twitter Feed or our Google + page and ask away.
We’ll try and answer your question to the best of our ability. We’ve already been asked if we can help track down a family business that was based on Commercial Road in the 19th and 20th Centuries and we’re on the case.
But it’s not just about questions. One of the great aspects of guiding our tours is the chance it gives us to discuss the topic with people who have a genuine interest in it. Often the guides will stand around in Mitre Square chatting with our clients about various aspects of the case or their own personal opinions on the murders.
We want to roll that out to our Jack the Ripper community and really become a genuine resource that people all over the world can get involved with. We want to get involved in discussions, or in debates about various issues surrounding the case.
So, if you have a question, and opinion, a photo you’ve taken on the tour, or if you grew up in the area or had answers who lived in the area and you want to see a particular street or building as it is today, post your question or request and we’ll do what we can to be of service.
After all our motto is and always has been “we’re with you every step of the way.”
