See the Sherlock Holmes Exhibition at the Museum of London

Back in May, when your author gathered with other interested London types at the Museum of London for the announcement of the new 'Sherlock Holmes:The Man Who Never Lived And Will Never Die' exhibition, the October start date seemed an impossibly long time away. Surely we would all be living on the Moon by then? Well the exhibition is now upon us, and we are told that it is the largest of its kind for more than 60 years, exploring the fictional detective in depth.

It's London's first major exhibition about Holmes since 1951, and since then interest in Holmes has far from diminished. The exhibition will include a rare oil on canvas portrait of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle never before seen in the UK, some original pages from Edgar Allan Poe’s 1841 manuscript of The Murders in the Rue Morgue and the original 1903 manuscript of The Adventure of the Empty House.
