“I’ll show you a grim little bit of evidence” [RETI] 

Paul Churchill, BSI (“Corot”) delighted in recreating evidence boxes for each Sherlock Holmes story. After his death in 2008, Deborah Clark became their steward.

Regular attendees of Watson's Tin Box see evidence boxes at every monthly meeting, but we wanted to give you a peek inside as well. Debbie sat down with us to detail what these evidence boxes are, how Paul created them, and what makes them so special. 

The contents inside them (and outside of some of them) are astounding in their reality and detail, bringing the Sherlock Holmes stories to life in a unique way. We have posted photos of some of the contents.

And of course, we have another Canonical Couplet to challenge your acuity. If you are chosen as a winner, you'll get The Sherlock Holmes Scrapbook by Peter Haining. Answers are due by October 14, 2021 at 11:59 a.m. EDT.
