(slaps forehead) Of course, the year is quite specific as the inspector's office has pictures of the Ripper's victims on the board so it dates quite exactly. I know in the US, Edison and Tesla locked horns over AC and DC and Tesla won the day but Edison seemingly tried to discredit Tesla's system. I think I read or watched somewhere that Edison's use of DC in New York would have required a DC generator every mile or so. That's what got me thinking about Ripper Street's historical accuracy but it seems Auntie was correct.
