Handsome Hansom

When I lived in London and commuted by train every day I had a lot of time to kill. One of the ways I did it was reading the entire Sherlock Holmes library. I found it fascinating not only for the legendary adventures of Holmes and Watson, but since they were written as contemporary pieces back in the late 1800's, they're a time capsule of life at the time. Back then one of the primary forms of transportation was horse drawn carriage, like this charming example by crises_crs, and since most of the places and streets in the books still exist, it wasn't hard to imagine Sherlock and John making their way around that way.
