    Ok,
    So, one of my grandsons got the idea of adding a woman reading a book. Then, months later he suggested Dr. Watson typing Holmes memoirs on his typewriter. (yes, typewriters were common place in the mid 1850s)
    So, I decided to throw in Mrs. Hudson peaking out at Moriarty. Hence, we now have Sherlock, Watson, Mrs. Hudson and Moriarty and OH yes, a passenger in the hack.

    A few things have been moved around, but this is IT!
    I'll set it aside until I've got the dough to have it printed on canvas at Costco. 40 inch x 30 inch.

    Fun stuff, Ron! You did more than move a few things around: you changed almost every detail!

    You could make a 'spot the differences' game out of it. I estimate there are at least a few dozen differences.

    Ron, you've got to HTML5 animate it (GSAP)!

    Wonderful, Ron. Might the figure in the cab be Irene Adler, "The only woman he ever loved"?

    PENNY!
    That is an excellent observation! I hadn't thought of it, but that's what it will be heretofore.
    Thank you!

    Thanks for your comments Eric, Boy and Acorn!

    Thanks, Gray!

    It was a lot of work over a long period of time and many changes, but it was also fun.

    I'm working on a new one. I'm not sure what the title will be, but it will be something to do with an old man, scientist, inventor.
