I'm trying to avoid Whitechapel because that's where Jack the Ripper was doing his "dirty deeds" at the time, and I don't want people thinking he's involved in this story. The story is about a man trying to solve the mystery of what happened to this little boy. I want the kid to grow up in a impoverished area of the time, but I'm not sure where. I looked up places, and I really liked Devil's Acre, but from the looks of it, that place was taken care of by the time my story takes place (anyone has anymore knowledge on Devil's Acre, I'd highly appreciate it). I was thinking to maybe create a fictional area, but I'm really leaning towards I place that actually existed to give it a feel of authenticity, if you catch my drift. Anyone got any ideas or advice? I would sincerely appreciate it.
