      Dear Holmesians,

      One of the interesting contemporary of Sherlock Holmes was the unnamed detective created by Baroness Orczy. The Old Man in the Corner is an unnamed armchair detective who appears in a series of short stories written by her. 

      The Old Man in the Corner examines and solves crimes while sitting in the corner of a genteel London tea-room in conversation with a female journalist,Polly Burton.

      He was one of the first of this character-type created in the wake of the huge popularity of Sherlock Holmes

      Regards

      Sumal S
