Hanbury Street: 1911
While researching my book, The Temperature of Death, I came across some interesting photographs of 62 Hanbury Street in a file at the National Archives relating to the murders of Solomon and Anne Milstein at that address in December 1911, as discussed in the book. I thought I would share them here.

Although primarily a restaurant, there was a gambling den in the cellar and it was the type of unsavoury characters attracted to this den which led to the murders of the Milsteins.
