For the Sherlockian Tourist

I make no secret of the fact that The Sign of Four is my favourite Sherlock Holmes story. So I would like to show you a picture of a NatWest Bank.



Why? Well this is the NatWest bank in South Norwood High Street. Prior to its life as a bank it was the local police station and it would seem likely, given its position in relation to Kilravock House*, that it is the police station where Athelney Jones was based.

'"You have no reason for fear, Mr. Sholto," said Holmes kindly, putting his hand upon his shoulder; "take my advice and drive down to the station to report the matter to the police. Offer to assist them in every way. We shall wait here until your return."'

*Kilravock House was identified by the late Bernard Davies as the real Pondicherry Lodge.
