In Conan Doyle's day, house numbers on Baker Street, London, didn't actually go as far up as 221. While the address is fictional, this illustration takes inspiration from a real-life building on the street, the Holmes Museum, which has been assigned the number 221B in honour of its subject. The artist combined this facade with a real historical photograph of Baker Street, as it would have looked in Victorian London.
“Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.”
