otsoNY Comments: Baker Street takes its name from the home of Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson lived at 221b Baker Street btw 1881-1904, according to the stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The house was last used as a lodging house in 1936 and the famous 1st floor study overlooking Baker Street is still faithfully maintained as it was kept in Victorian Times.
