An Uncanny Resemblance

I am taking advantage of this open date in the calendar to post an old picture that has been in my family for a long time. It is of a relative of mine, a Dr John H Watson who I am the exact image of. This picture has been verified by myself to become the only true photograph taken at the flat at 221B with the the only true likeness of the Master himself, Sherlock Holmes. Amazingly, he closely resembles the greatest movie actor to play Sherlock Holmes on the movie and TV screen, Mr Peter Cushing, OBE. Enjoy!! I do.

(This picture was verified and converted by that Distinguished Sherlockian Steve Thorpe, who I will ever be in debt to for his kindness and his labor on this project.)
