Re: 1937 Lawrence Street Mass Murder

Re: What Are You Currently Reading

'The Monster of Florence' by Robert Preston. Italy's true crime answer to Jack the Ripper but it is up to date. So far, it's a cracking story.

Re: Number plate or speed camera?

ANPR - Automatic Number Plate Recognition. I'm surprised you didn't spot a marked polis motor further along the road, the idea being is a vehicle triggers the ANPR, details are passed to the police car, who in turn, stops the offending vehicle.

Re: Duke Street Prison

Chuppazee My information is that the executed individuals were buried in the ground adjacent to the north west wall of the prison. There were not moved in later years because there was nothing to move. All executed bodies were placed in extra wide coffins that had between 1 and 3 inches of lime chal...
