    Comment

    One of the few of Watson’s locations where a real address was used. The location was proved by Kelvin I Jones in 1980 in his Sherlock Holmes and the South Eastern. Jones also pointed out that the wealthy Boone family who founded almshouses in the area might have provided St Clair with the inspiration for the name he used as a beggar. In Conan Doyle’s time it was the home of the widow of John Penn, an eminent marine engineer.
