Yes, Whitechapel is where the Jack the Ripper murders took place. It's an infamous part of London now mostly inhabited by Pakistanis and Indians and it contains the famous Brick Lane, where you get the best curries! My hosts Farah Mendlesohn and her partner Edward James were taking me there for lunch. Farah's in the middle at the bottom of the picture.
