Product Description


Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's vivid scene-setting in the Sherlock Holmes stories has probably done more to shape our image of late 19th century London than any other writer. Holmes and Watson ranged far and wide across the metropolis, and in this uniquely fascinating book Charles Viney retraces their footsteps, collecting over 300 original photographs of London taken between 1879 and 1914. Following the sequence of stories in "The Complete Adventures of Sherlock Holmes", each photograph date from the same year as the story, and each photograph, reproduced in glorious duotone, is captioned with historical details. Each location is precisely pinpointed on a Victorian A-Z map, allowing the enthusiast to visit the sites in person.
