Today, September 24, is the day when the statue of Sherlock Holmes was unveiled in London
There are statues of Sherlock Holmes in many cities around the world.
His first statue appeared in Meiringen (Switzerland) in 1988, and the next one was opened in Karuizawa (Japan).
In 1991, a bronze Holmes was installed in Picardy Place, Edinburgh (Conan Doyle's birthplace).
In London, on September 1999, 24, a statue of Sherlock Holmes, the world's most famous adventurer and detective, was opened near the Baker Street subway station.
Holmes is depicted looking thoughtfully into the distance, dressed for the rainy London weather—a long coat, a small-brimmed hat, and a pipe in his right hand.
The author of the three-meter bronze monument was the famous English sculptor John Doubleday.
