The Case of the Stolen Silk 

The Old Bailey site is one of those deep and rich sites full of history of London as well as crime. The site encompasses the years1674-1834.

Amongst the subjects covered is a history of the French immigrants in Spitalfields (silk weavers) and at least one case involving the theft of silk.

Interesting proceedings Linn - at first I wondered what he was going to so with 122 yards of silk then realised of course sell it! Doh! Obviously I am not sparking on all 4 cylinders tonight.
