Mausoleum, St George in the East, Shadwell, London, UK

14 Cannon St Rd Whitechapel

The now ruinous mausoleum in the grounds of Hawksmoor church St George in the East. Converted into a nature museum for children in the early 20th Century, but originally the place where local corpses were laid out. One of Jack the Ripper's victims, part-Swedish Liz Stride, was laid out here for identification.
