Sidney Paget Illustrations: "Holmes gave me a sketch of the events"

I thought it was about time I started to post some of the iconic original Sidney Paget illustrations from the Strand magazine. This one is one of my personal favourites and must be one of the most famous and most popular images of Holmes and Watson together.

"I lay back against the cushions, puffing at my cigar, while Holmes, leaning forward, with his long thin forefinger checking off the points upon the palm of his left hand, gave me a sketch of the events which had led to our journey."
