August 1888 was a poignant month in history.
It was the month when London's notorious serial killer Jack the Ripper is believed to have murdered his first victim in Whitechapel.
On August 7, a prostitute named Martha Turner was found stabbed to death on a landing of George Yard Buildings.
While she was never formally identified as one of his victims, she is considered as the most likely candidate.
The "canonical five", the name given to the victims, first began with Mary Ann Nichols.
She was found around 4am in Bucks Row, Whitechapel on the night of August 31.
It was here where the legend of the ripper would soon spread across London as other victims fell to his brutality.
Shortly after her death, London police officers began to question the neighbourhood's prostitutes to discover if they could find the attacker.
It was not until September 8 that they believed he struck again when Annie Chapman was found in the back yard of 29 Hanbury Street.
An official letter was sent to Central News Agency two weeks later signed by Jack the Ripper, a name which would turn the unknown man into a world famous legend.
Three days later, he committed two murders in one hour. At 1am the body of Elizabeth Stride is found in Berner Street off of Commercial Road.
And a short 45 minutes later, Catherine Eddowes was discovered in Mitre Square in the City of London.
Over a month went by before he took another life on November 9 1888.
His final victim of the five was called Mary Jane Kelly. She was found in Dorset Street Spitalfields and is believed by many to be the last ever one.
But there are others who have the similar markings of the Ripper, however.
Rose Mylett, Alice McKenzie, an unknown woman and Frances Coles are not officially victims but many believe them to be.
Crime writer Tom Slemen and criminologist Keith Andrews, both of Liverpool, claim to have new evidence that identifies a Col Claude Reignier Conder as the man who killed the five and that he was living in Guildford at about that time.
Other people have been linked with the Ripper murders such as a member of the royal family, and the writer Lewis Carroll who was also a frequent visitor to Guildford.
However, he would never be identified even though a multitude of names plausible and otherwise have been suggested such as painter Walter Sickert and Queen Victoria's grandson, Prince Albert Victor.
While we may not know who he is, you can trace his steps and make you own conclusion as to who the police should have been looking for throughout the biggest man hunt in history on the Jack the Ripper tour with Ripper-Vision.
