Anthony and Anna lived in Sussex, which is about 50 miles south of London.


Alexandre lives in East Sussex, within sight of Pevensey Castle. Pevensey is a real castle that the Romans built around 290 AD. (Incidentally, Alexandre’s house and Lord Donnán’s house are both built on or near Roman ruins.)


Devitt doesn’t live in Sussex, since he had to take a train to Sussex in order to reach Anthony’s house. He caught the first morning train to Sussex and he arrived around sunset. Maybe he lives in London?


Devitt lives at Edward Street 24, in Westminster, London. Edward Street was a real street, but in the early 20th century it seems to have been broken up into several smaller streets, each with a different name. For that reason, I cannot tell if Edward Street 24 was ever a real address.


Since Wakefield was treating Devitt, they presumably live in the same general area.

既然Wakefield在治疗Devitt, 他们大概住在同一综合区域。

Kaufmann’s butler was named Herz. Therefore, he may have lived in or near Germany. This is just a guess - he could just as easily have lived in London.

Kaufmann的管家名叫Herz。因此,他可能住在或接近德国。这只是一个猜测 - 无疑,他也可能住在伦敦

Ernest and Baldwin lived in St. Gall Hospital, just outside the Scottish city of Aberdeen. St. Gall appears to be fictional. (There is a real abbey named St. Gall, and it has a hospital, but it’s in Switzerland and it was secularized in 1805.)


In Chapter 3, Devitt imagined(?) that he was in the Old Nichol Street Rookery. Nichol Street was an infamous rookery (a slum) that was located in East London.


In Chapter 5, Wakefield traveled to London. He investigated the East Hill asylum, St. Giles Rookery, and 26 Paul Street. Each of these locations is real.


East Hill is a street in Wandsworth, a borough in southwest London. In the 19th century, there was a mental institution on East Hill called The Huguenots. It billed itself as a “private asylum for the care and treatment of ladies mentally afflicted.” This is a photograph from 1894. It actually looks a lot like the asylum in the game.


St. Giles is a district in north central London. In the 19th century, it was the home of another infamous rookery. The BBC collected some pictures of it. I think that the Crimson Nest (the opium den) is fictional.

圣吉尔斯伦敦中北的一个区域。在19世纪,它是另一个声名狼藉的贫民窟的家。BBC收集了一些关于它的图片. 我认为“深红之巢”(那个鸦片馆)是虚构的。

26 Paul Street is an address in central London, just north of the traditional City of London. It doesn’t have a dark past, as far as I know. It's currently the home of The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD), which seems appropriate, somehow.


(This is a nitpick, but the map in Chapter 5 may be upside down. East Hill is in the southwest, St. Giles is in the north, and Paul Street is in the east. However, the map implies the opposite. Of course, the map might be oriented so that south is pointing up.)


In Chapter 5, Conghill and Skidd described the Battle of Majuba Hill. The battle occurred in South Africa on February 27, 1881. The British forces were massacred, effectively ending the first Boer War. Some historical sources suggest that there was a dense mist during the battle, like Conghill described.


Wickport and Éilís Mór seem to be fictional locations. (Technically, there is a Wick Port, but it’s the main port of Wick, a town in Scotland.)

WickportÉilís Mór似乎是虚构的。(严格来说,有一个Wick港,但它是苏格兰城镇Wick镇的主要港口。)
