Lost Sherlock Holmes story discovered in man’s attic – Telegraph

An historian has unearthed the first unseen Sherlock Holmes story in more than 80 years that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote to help save a town bridge.

Walter Elliot, 80, found the 1,300-word tale starring the famous detective in a collection of short stories written for a local bazaar.
The wooden bridge in the Scottish town of Selkirk was destroyed by the great flood of 1902 and locals organised a three-day event to raise funds for a new one in 1904.

This is no hoax. This find says something reassuring about printing on paper.  

The article includes a link to the full manuscript.  I’ve read and re-read all of the Sherlock Holmes stories many times. What a treat!
