The history of George Louis Gumprech *

GL Gumprech was born in Germany in 1833 and came to London in May 1856. He was a publican and a photographer (which is why I'm researching him, to date a photo he took of an ancestor of mine). He was employed by the river police to take photos of corpses who were fished out of the Thames for identification purposes and it is possible that he took photos of some of the early ripper victims (certainly the photographer who took over his studio did) - don't worry, my ancestor was alive and kicking when his photo was taken. *


The Clerkenwell News of Thursday 09 February 1871 lists him as taking over the licence from Anna Margreta Sehrt *

George Gumprech, head, married, aged 38, Lic Vic born Hannover

William Shute, Servant, single, aged 20, waiter, born Stepney

Christine Damm, Servant, unmarried, aged 38, cook, born Germany
