One thing to do in London that still remained on my to-do list was going on a Jack the Ripper tour. There are several tour companies out there that organise these walking tours, but the one I went on was organised by a lady called Jude who also runs photography workshops. So this Jack the Ripper tour doubled as a photograpy tuition walk as well.
The trendy area that is now known as Shoreditch with popular Spitalfields market and buzzing Brick Lane, looked a lot different then. People were poor, streets were dirty and diseases were rife.
And of course, I learned a bit more about taking photos. Two birds with one stone. If you want to check out Jude's tour, you can find more info on the meetup website.
