"passed along the London road" [SIGN]
One of our favorite phrases as it relates to the Sherlock Holmes stories is from Edgar Smith's Editor's Gas-Lamp in an early issue of the Baker Street Journal in which he wrote:
We love the times in which he lived, of course, the half-remembered, half-forgotten times of snug Victorian illusion, of gaslit comfort and contentment, of perfect dignity and grace. And we love the place: the England of those times, fat with the fruits of her achievements, but strong and daring still with the spirit of imperial adventure.
From the YouTube posting:
London is the last stop in an epic trip across Britain filmed in remarkable early colour.
London was the final stop in a marathon journey around Britain filmed as a series of cinema travelogues. Pioneering filmmaker Claude Friese-Greene brought these picture-postcard scenes to life with a specially-devised colour film process.
