    Default Chris George Trivia Thread

    Hi all


    ADVERTISING




    I have begun a trivia thread on another site to do with Jack the Ripper but since it has a Maybrick - Liverpool connection I thought I would try a similar thread here, for a bit of fun.

    I posted the following photograph in Caroline Morris's "Let's Discuss the Irregular Farce of Battlecrease Harse, or Die Laughing" thread at JtR Forums as a trivia question but I thought I would start a whole thread with this question. By the way, some of our Yo! regulars might like to chime in on Caz's observation that most Liverpudlians use the word "seen" for "saw" as in "I seen my friend recently" -- my feeling is that it is not as universal as she seems to think it is.

    Following is a photograph of the former Quarry Bank High School in Liverpool, which I attended 1965 to 1968. It is one of John Lennon's schools (the Beatles were as originally known as the Quarrymen, a name derived from the school song, I understand). That's the old building that was the nucleus of Quarry below. It was completed as a private residence in 1867 and is now part of Calderstones Comprehensive School, having merged with what was Calder High School for Girls next door and another local girls school.



    In this picture, whomever identifies the Maybrick connection in the photograph, wins a copy of the CD of my musical "Jack ? The Musical," written with French composer Erik Sitbon (CD available at http://cdbaby.com/cd/asu3), as performed by Actors Seen Unseen in Charlotte, North Carolina, May 13 & 14, 2006. Good luck.

    I'm sure this was Maybricks first home before mobing into Battles crease house.

    Whilst on the subject of JR the letter "Dear Boss" was written by the newspaper reporter and did you know Chris,that most of the places around London where the murders took place are also birtually identical to the places in Liverpool...for instance...

    London...
    Whitechapel,Thomas Street,Commercial Street,Castle Alley,Church Lane,Lime Street

    Liverpool...
    Whitechapel,Sir Thomas Street,Castle Street,Commercial Road,Castle Street,Church Street,Lime Street

    There's still one Street I havn't identified both in London and Liverpool,these areas are more or less where Maybrick frequented in Liverpool and areas near to the scenes of the murders in London.

    Thanks, Spike and George. No, Spike, but there is something else in the photograph which we can associate with Maybrick. Keep trying.

    Thanks, George. I don't think you will mind if I copy your interesting observation onto JtR Forums. Of course there are lots and lots of streets in both Liverpool and London so there's bound to be some similarity of names, I think, in the natural run of events.

    All the best

    This is true but we're talking about JM here and its a bit of a coincidence that these streets/roads/allys are in and around where Maybrick frequented in Liverpool and the Murders in London the same streets where in close proximity.

    Anyway its another theory to get yer teeth into if its not been enlightened before?
