This site is made up of Sherlockiana, or Holmesiana, or whatever you want to call people, places, and things related to the Sherlock Holmes stories created by Arthur Conan Doyle.

The "tin dispatch box" of the title is a reference to the opening of "The Problem of Thor Bridge":

"Somewhere in the vaults of the bank of Cox and Co., at Charing Cross, there is a travel-worn and battered tin dispatchbox with my name, John H. Watson, M. D., Late Indian Army, painted upon the lid. It is crammed with papers, nearly all of which are records of cases to illustrate the curious problems which Mr. Sherlock Holmes had at various times to examine."
