“The story has, I believe, been told more than once in the newspapers …”
– The Adventure of the Engineer’s Thumb (ENGR)
When Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had his stories published that would make up the Case Book of Sherlock Holmes, the stories were first printed in the United States in Colliers Weekly and in the Strand Magazine for the United Kingdom. The North American Newspaper Alliance would offer the stories to its member newspapers a few months later for publication.
Two years ago, we shared images of when the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin published The Adventure of the Three Garridebs. We have recently been able to obtain scans of some of the additional newpapers that also published The Three Garridebs as well and will be sharing them in several upcoming posts.
Today, we are sharing scans of The Winnipeg Evening Tribune of Saturday, March 21, 1925. They published the 3GAR story that day in their magazine section. You can take a look at the magazine cover, along with page 6 and page 7 where the story was printed. As was the case with post of the newspaper versions of this story, they only used one of Frederic Dorr Steele’s drawing, using when John Garrideb visited Holmes and Watson at thier quarters in Baker Street.
