In the early morning of 31 August 1888, the body of Mary Ann Nichols (“Polly”) was found on the pavement on the south side of Buck’‘s Row. She is generally thought to have been the first victim of Jack the Ripper. As the case attracted much unwanted attention to the street, its name was changed that same year to Durward Street.

Here, at this corner of this wall, the Polly Nichols’‘s body was found.
