Coal Holes

Angel Alley

This plaque marks and points to the entrance to Angel Alley where the Freedom Press and bookshop are located, the world’s largest anarchist publisher. The Alley also has a large mural of famous anarchists.

The Alley is also very famous during the times of Jack the Ripper when it was used for girls to have some “privacy” during their working hours. Extensively used by prostitutes and their clients for centuries is also known as the place were Martha Turner (one of Jack the Ripper’s victims) used to hang out with a friend known as Pearly Poll.

It isn’t a coal hole but reminds me of one and I do think it should be part of my collection and you all should enjoy as well.
