.Amanda Harvey Purse is a researcher for the City of London Police Museum. She has written a book about the City of London policemen (and one or two Metropolitan officers) who hunted Jack the Ripper in the late 1880s. It’s called Jack and Old Jewry (Old Jewry being the name of the former City Police headquarters). It’s a hefty book, packed with information, lavishly illustrated, and full of good stories about the policemen (and police cats) who patrolled the streets of London.. At the back there is my 13-page index.
