Bacon's map was published at the time the Sherlock Holmes tales took place. Holmes' address of 221B Baker Street was fictitious, but Baker Street was real and can be seen southwest of Regent Park. Dedicated Sherlock fans can find landmarks mentioned in the stories and follow Holmes as he moves about the great metropolis.
