MitreSquare font

This rather dainty font has a rather sinister background — i.e. the murder of Catherine Eddowes by the serial killer called JackTheRipper on September 30 1888 at London Mitre Square. One month later on 27th October 1888 a police inspector by the name of Jason McWilliam wrote a report concerning the events of that night. Shortly afterwards someone whose name is not on record made a copy of Inspector Mc William’s report which copy got its Home Office stamp on “29 OCT 88”.
