Long before number 23 became the home of Goldsboro Books it was the site of the notorious murder of Elsie Batten, a 59 year old shop assistant working at Louis Meier’s Antiques. It was however, to be the solution to the crime that made its mark on history. Her murderer Edwin Bush, was identified and caught within days using a revolutionary new technique that was to change the future of police detection in the UK; the Identikit system. With the later conviction and execution of Bush at Pentonville Prison it became the first case solved using Identikit.
Set in the beautiful surroundings of Cecil Court and given the unique history of the location, Goldsboro Books is the perfect place for a evening that is set to be criminal.
