  In this article, Kevin K. O’Neill looks at crime in early 19th century London. This was an age before the birth of the police, and in this grimly Dickensian world, crime was rife. Some of the crimes committed were simply shocking.   The Tom and Jerry cocktail was originally a publicity stunt devised by a British journalist, Pierce Egan, to coincide with the release of his book, Life in London, or The Day and Night Scenes of Jerry Hawthorn Esq. and his Elegant Friend Corinthian Tom, along with the stage play that followed that same year, Tom and Jerry, or Life in London. 5/5(1).
