A mouse click on the map below will open an interactive map. This interactive map is one of the electronic features in Thomas Bruce Wheeler's The Mapped London of Sherlock Holmes, (Amazon, $5.99). On the left side of the interactive map is its legend. A click on the legend's small vertical three-dot symbol will allow you to collapse the legend. Then, a click on one of the map's small Sherlock Holmes silhouettes will open an illustrated text box explaining the Sherlockian significance of that place and the adventure(s) in which it was mentioned. If you what to see that place in modern London, click on the illustrated text box's small diamond symbol. This will generate a new Google map with only that site marked. On the lower right side of the new map is a small yellow Pegman symbol. Zoom in  and drag the Pegman to the blue street nearest the marked site. This will generate a street-level photograph of that place. Your mouse wheel can then be used to convert the photo to an aerial view.
 

The Mapped London of Sherlock Holmes E-book also contains access to a Victorian map overlay, showing the streets and buildings Sherlock "knew". A mouse click on the book's cover below will link to Amazon.com, where the book can be previewed and/or purchased.










Enjoy, the game is afoot!
