Общественные события времен Холмса

МАКСИМ: Читая истории Холмса,иногда можно заметить отображения тех или иных важных общественных событий конца 19 века,отображенных в тексте. Например, Первая мировая война...или даже сама история Джека Потрошителя так или иначе повлияла на творчества Дойля. Или, скажем, Холмс упоминает "известного норвежского ученого Сигерсона" - а ведь это не иначе как Фритьоф Нансен, за путешествием которого на судне "ФРАМ" следила вся прогрессивная общественность Европы и Америки. Может еще что то заметили?
