A Look at the Connections Between Historical London, Sherlock Holmes and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
The London of the late nineteenth century was home to both Arthur Conan Doyle and his famous detective - Sherlock Holmes. This book looks at some of the many locations in both central and outer London that have connections to one or both of these famous names. In addition to examining the history this book also looks at some of the theories that have been woven over the years around Holmes and these locations.
"Mr. Duncan's location chapters are easy to follow and he communicates the facts in an engaging and straightforward manner. It is as if an old friend is visiting London for the day and s/he and the author are enjoying a relaxed conversation whilst the latter points out, with great accuracy, important canonical and Doylean locations and their context. The writing is very well supported with over 140 black and white photographs (some colour in ebook format), many showing how buildings looked over a hundred years ago and their appearance today. This is a delightful book, as useful on your reference shelves as in your pocket when on your field trip."
