Sherlock Holmes

This image is undated, but like Lovecraft's fascination with Conan Doyle's character, it probably coincided with the publication of Hounds of the Baskervilles after 1902 (American, New York, McClure, Phillips & Co., 1902).

Unknonw whether HPL also dressed like this when playing detective, but in 1903 his family would have had the resources to indulge him.
