Who was Dr. Tumblety?

Pittsburgh’s history is loaded with the spirits of interesting characters. Perhaps none more intriguing than Dr. Francis Tumblety, a medical quack, charlatan, and prime suspect in the 1888 serial killer case of Jack the Ripper in London’s Whitechapel District. According to legend, Dr. Tumblety opened his apothecary somewhere in Pittsburgh during the Victorian Era.

Dr. Tumblety immigrated from Ireland on a coffin ship in 1847. He was known as an Indian herb doctor, an eccentric self-promoter and self-proclaimed M.D. who traveled the world in a “snake oil” wagon led by horses and a set of greyhounds. Legend says he peddled his homemade spells, elixirs, and remedies, along with his own brand of patent medicine, which at that time was primarily made with alcohol. Armed with a letter of  introduction from his friend, President Abraham Lincoln, he kept company with celebrities like Charles Dickens and Lord Stanley, and he was impeccably well-dressed. Some say the Dok would collect goods from others and bring them back to be featured in his apothecary at 188 Liberty Street, Downtown Pittsburgh. Tumblety managed to attain great wealth along his journeys of majick and mischief, and was a well respected business man.

Inspired by Spirits™ Distilling Company, llc is conjuring the spirit of Dr. Tumblety, the spirit of the curiosity he stirred, and the spirit of his original apothecary shop. Residents and tourists can shop the Dok’s apothecary for tonics & trinkets, hats & fragrance, grooming & cosmetics, locally made artisan products, novels & novelties, oils & elixirs, cures & curiosities, vintage goods & gifts from around the world.Read More...
