UPT Co-Founder Lynn Gale says, ”We did it! The team from all over the world has saved the former home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle from development. The judge ruled in our favour this morning. Thank you to everyone for all their support.”

- from saveundershaw.com

We’re absolutely thrilled by this news and incredibly grateful to all who have campaigned tirelessly to get Arthur Conan Doyle’s home saved from development. It’s a wonderful day for Sherlockians! It’s also a great opportunity to thank everyone who entered the Save Undershaw montage project and give you a little update on how it’s going.

The poster’s slogan will now be changed from “Save Undershaw” to “We saved Undershaw!” which is absolutely fantastic! We’re still working on the layout of the poster and will be updating on how it’s going over at our Twitter

The winning entry will be revealed at the same time as we launch the final poster.

Sherlock’s bedroom Portraits, a Study (2 of 2)DIMITRI MENDELEEV 1834 - 1907    - Seen here on Sherlock’s wall.
Dimitri Mendeleev was a Russian chemist, inventor and Doctor of Science widely known to be responsible for creating the Periodic Table of the Elements. At the time that Mendeleev created his table, not all chemical elements had been discovered so he left spaces within it along with predicted properties that they would have. He was successful in his predictions and when the elements were discovered they fitted perfectly into the spaces he had left in his table. 
It’s obvious to any Holmes fan as to why Sherlock would idolise a man such as Mendeleev. Sherlock’s interest in the Periodic Table he created is made visible by his framed print of it also seen on his bedroom wall, here. 
Mendeleev’s portrait on Sherlock’s wall was taken in 1897. A high-res copy can be seen online here.

Sherlock’s bedroom Portraits, a Study (1 of 2)EDGAR ALLAN POE 1809 - 1849    - Seen here on Sherlock’s wall.
As previously mentioned, the portrait of Poe seen in Sherlock’s bedroom is a subtle link added to the set by the show’s creators in tribute to the original inspiration of the Sherlock Holmes stories. Poe’s detective character C. Auguste Dupin was the inspiration for Arthur Conan Doyle’s Holmes and is known to be the first ever fictional detective. Sir Arthur described Poe as:

"the father of the detective tale. [He] covered its limits so completely that I fail to see how his followers can find any fresh ground which they can confidently call their own.”

In the Sherlock Holmes books themselves, Poe’s Dupin is mentioned by ACD. In A Study in Scarlet Watson writes:

"It is simple enough as you explain it," I said, smiling. "You remind me of Edgar Allan Poe’s Dupin. I had no idea that such individuals did exist outside of stories." Sherlock Holmes rose and lit his pipe. “No doubt you think that you are complimenting me in comparing me to Dupin,” he observed. “Now, in my opinion, Dupin was a very inferior fellow. That trick of his of breaking in on his friends’ thoughts with an apropos remark after a quarter of an hour’s silence is really very showy and superficial. He had some analytical genius, no doubt; but he was by no means such a phenomenon as Poe appeared to imagine.”

If you’d like to read more about the influence Poe’s writings had on Arthur Conan Doyle and see a comprehensive comparison of the similarities in both of their texts you can read a wonderful online essay by Drew R. Thomas here: Part One | Part Two
The portrait of Poe (a daguerreotype) is available in a larger size here. The image is titled “Ultima Thule" and was taken a year before Poe’s death. For more information on the print itself and how it was created please see our previous ask-answer on the portrait here.
