[Perspectives] Handcuffs London
The shovel used by Dr Crippen to bury his wife’s dismembered body. The rubber gloves worn by John George Haigh when he dissolved Olive Durand-Deacon’s body in sulphuric acid. The rope that hanged Amelia Dyer, possibly the most prolific murderer in modern history, in 1896. Death masks and roulette wheels, murder ballads and sawn-off shotguns: in another universe The Crime Museum Uncovered would be a curiosity shop run by a very strange shopkeeper indeed.
