In the mid-19th century, Britain experienced an influx of Irish
immigrants, who swelled the populations of the major cities,
including the East End of London. From 1882, Jewish refugees from
pogroms in Tsarist Russia and other areas of Eastern Europe
emigrated into the same area.The civil parish of Whitechapel in
London's East End became increasingly overcrowded. Robbery,
violence and alcohol dependency were commonplace, and the
endemic poverty drove many women to prostitution. In October
1888, London's Metropolitan Police Service estimated that there
were 62 brothels and 1,200 women working as prostitutes in
Whitechapel.Anti-semitism, crime, nativism, racism, social
disturbance, and severe deprivation fed public perceptions that
Whitechapel was a notorious den of immorality.
