Sherlock Holmes and London Transport

In a slightly back-handed tribute, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s birthday on the 22nd May is now being referred to as “Sherlock Holmes Day”. This year the London Transport Museum got in on the act.

As the Museum is currently closed, you’ll have to go to its website to explore the links between the Great Detective and public transport in the Metropolis. It isn’t all to do with the Underground, of course, but Baker Street Station is an excellent place to start.

For the time being, start here: https://news.ltmuseumshop.co.uk/u/gm.php?prm=eBodzp8CdU_568212386_7452970_45004

But note that the link “Explore More Sherlock” doesn’t work. The page where you’ll find some of the Holmesian items in the Museum’s splendid collection is here: https://www.ltmuseum.co.uk/collections/collections-online/the-collection?q=sherlock+holmes

Take a look too through the Society’s online photo gallery. And we urge you to visit the London Transport Museum when it reopens!
