Errors in geography
The film depicts the Ripper in his carriage en route to pick up his next victim (as depicted in the next shot) racing along the Thames with Big Ben and the Tower in the background. This would mean that he was on the wrong bank of the Thames, racing away from the Whitechapel district, which was located within easy walking distance of the Tower.

By the late 1800s glass windows were becoming common, and while the glass was heavier and sometimes uneven, it was certainly clear and very much like modern glass (although more expensive). While still produced by a glass-blower, it could be blown into large sheets and cut for windows. Thus the modern-looking windows in the movie could have been around in 1888.
