London as we know it effectively began in Roman times. During Victorian times, the city saw huge immigration from Ireland and the Continent. This created problems in certain areas such as Whitechapel and the East End because of overcrowding and poverty. In 1888, Londoners experienced the 'Autumn of Terror' when Jack the Ripper carried out a series of murders.
