If we ask you who the most famous detective of all time is, it is likely that Sherlock Holmes will pop to mind in the first few seconds. But did you know that his author was dedicated to solving crimes, just like his character? In fact, Conan Doyle identified with Watson, while, in fact, Sherlock is who he would have liked to be.
Sherlock lived at 221B Baker Street, London, where he met with Watson to discuss his investigations. It is actually possible to the address currently, as it serves as the Sherlock Holmes Museum.
To commemorate the anniversary of Arthur Conan Doyle’s death, we have done an exhaustive search on the web to find the best existing representations of 221B Baker Street. We hope you can imagine sitting in an armchair, solving crimes with Sherlock!

Used more solemnly, the expression “den of iniquity” implies a certain discernment that a morally upright person would consider intolerable.
For Sherlock Holmes, perhaps 221B is a Den of Inquiry?
