Back in 2013 our magazine The Cable published a fascinating article by Ivan Koop Kuper about his maternal family's East End origins in Whitechapel.
Ivan, who lives in Houston, Texas, has been back in touch wondering whether the article sparked any memories.
He writes: “This story was meant to be a sort of ‘message in a bottle’, that you will understand once you re-read the story. I was hopeful that by publishing this article, some lost relative would crawl out of the woodwork, so-to-speak, and there would finally be a connection and some closure to the story. My mother lost contact and was estranged from her London East End family.”
Ivan’s hope is that readers who think they could have a connection with his family will get in touch with him.
So, will reading the article ring any bells with you?
