Jack the Ripper History Coursework
By Chris Rowland
1) Study Source A
What can you learn from source A about the murders of Polly Nicholls and Martha Tabram?
Looking at the source A, I can see that the murders of Polly Nicholls and Martha Tabram were linked. The source tells us that the two women were 'of the poorest of the poor'. Both women were prostitutes. The source suggests that the murders were committed by a 'demented being'; this was because of the 'extraordinary violence'. This would led me to think that these murders were committed by the same person which they were thought to be at that time, but know other sources and specialists believe that that these two murders may have been committed by two different people. You cannot rely on this source too much because it is a newspaper article that means the information has probably been sensationalised, because it is only interested in the news value. This newspaper leaves out many bits of information on the murders, like where they took place (George Yard and Bucks Row) and when they happened.
