Sherlock Holmes and Violins

​“We had a pleasant little meal together, during which Holmes would talk about nothing but violins, narrating with great exultation how he had purchased his own Stradivarius, which was worth at least five hundred guineas, at a Jewelry broker’s in Tottenham Court Road for fifty-five shillings. This led to Paganini, and we sat for an hour over a bottle of claret while he told me anecdote after anecdote of that extraordinary man.” The Adventure of the Cardboard Box
