Last quote by David Cannadine

I think we all tend to suppose that that late-19th century London as it really was, was the way it was in terms of how Conan Doyle depicted it. So, we think in particular of the gas lamps and the clattering of the horses hooves and the fogs in Baker Street. To some degree that's right, but actually Conan Doyle rather under-described the atmospheric things about late-19th century London. He doesn't write about the traffic jams, he doesn't write about the smell of horse droppings, he doesn't write about the filth of the pavements.feedback
