​​ ​​ SHERLOCK HOLMES' LONDON
  
  
  
A mouse click on the map below will activate an interactive map. This interactive map is one of the electronic features in Thomas Bruce Wheeler's The Mapped London of Sherlock Holmes, available on Amazon ($5.99). On the left side of the interactive map is a legend. If the legend offers a choice between "Share" and "Edit", select Edit. Then, a click on one of the map's small Holmes silhouettes will open an illustrated text box explaining the Sherlockian significance of that place and the adventure(s) in which it was mentioned.  
    
The book itself offers additional tools for finding the London of Sherlock Holmes. For example, a mouse click on one of book's GPS addresses 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.  By clicking and dragging the Pegman to the blue street nearest the marked site, a street-level photo will be generated. Your mouse wheel can then be used to convert that photo to an aerial view. The book also contains a map of Victorian London, showing the streets and buildings Sherlock "knew". A mouse click on the book's cover below, will link to Amazon.com.
