    Ok. The answer is none other than Detective Superintendent Hubert Rory Moore. He lived there. The actual number is 25.

    Hey Mark
    I was thinking about what you said about re-tracing Wallace's steps in Jan.
    Why don't you try to get some press coverage?
    It might awaken people's memories too?

    Hi DaisyChains

    I've never really thought about it. Might do.

    I usually tend to go by bus. Did manage to meet up with two like-minded people doing the same thing (on the date) in 2006. It was really interesting - but the bus service was abysmal
    That's why I'm honestly thinking of driving this time...

    It was interesting. They happened to overhear me talking to a friend and they just got talking. I don't think I would ever tire of discussing this case. A very famous writer from many years ago called James Agate was absolutely obsessed with the case and would never tire of discussing it. I sometimes wonder whether I am him reincarnated...

    I don't know the case inside and out but I do love reading about it.
    It's great to find other people with a great passion for unravelling mysteries.

    Interesting link DC. I see that it is dated 2001. House prices have rocketed since then.

    As far as I know there are different people living at no.29 now.

    the people who live there now are from an established family - in other words they are not strangers to the street, so they know all about it.

    Apparently one of the occupants who lived at number 29 (not long after Wallace moved out, I believe) got so fed up with sightseers looking through the window they devised an idea. They found a way of discouraging it by putting a mannequin in the exact position of Julia's body (across the mat) and sprinkled sawdust around, simulating blood. They hoped that it would 'freak' the inquisitive onlookers out and deter them from it...Whether it worked though is another matter

    Here's a similar link to the one you put up DaisyChains:

    The Wallace section is towards the end of the article.

    Two events coming up in the next few months:

    February 21: Lunchtime Talk: Crime and Punishment. Speaker is former policeman and Blue Badge guide John Edwards. He will be recounting some of the cases in St. George's Hall Learning Room.

    March 27: Lunchtime Talk: Murder! The talk is by Frank Carlyle, with emphasis on some of the trials that took place. Again it is at St. George's Hall Learning Room.

    That's so true lindylou. I remember going up there in the 1970's (when I wasn't even in my teens). Like you say, it never occurred to me to take any photographs...

    Hi Ste

    I think you probably just have to turn up. I'll find out. I went to a couple of talks a few months ago and there was no need to book.

    Yes, they should cater for that. Especially considering it is City of Culture year.
