Miller’s Court was featured in the very last episode of the FINAL series of Ripper Street (2016). The set was not authentic to the original location by any stretch of the imagination but I don’t think they were aiming for visual accuracy.
I’ve been doing loads of modelling of No13 over the last few weeks as I want to try to achieve some realistic images. It’s possible to get photo realistic results but I have to learn and fail along the way!
Here is the latest attempt at 13 Miller’s Court. It’s a Sketchfab hosted model so you can view it straight from your browser which is good. Stick it in full screen OR better yet go out and buy some 700 quid VR goggles (or £10 Google cardboard) and you can use VR to stand in the room and have a look around. it’s a great experience (perhaps ‘great’ is not the word to use to describe such a real life horror but the experience is very immersive).
I wanted to attempt to discover the time of day that MJK1 (the external of Miller’s Court) was photographed. In the original photograph there is evidence of sunlight and shadows cast across various parts of the scene. We know (or at least we think we know) the date that MJK1 was taken – 9th November 1888. It was taken at some point during the day that Mary Kelly’s body was discovered in her room at number 13 Miller’s Court.
