The Three Garridebs

“The story has, I believe, been told more than once in the newspapers …”

– The Adventure of the Engineer’s Thumb (ENGR)

Illustration by Frederic Dorr Steele for The Three Garridebs as published in the Los Angeles Times on March 29, 1925

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. Last year, we shared the Baltimore Sun version of the story. 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 Los Angeles Times of Sunday, March 29, 1925.  You can view a scan of each entire page by clicking on the picture of each of the three page. Unlike most of the newspaper versions of this story, they used both of Frederic Dorr Steele’s drawings (albeit, one was printed over the fold of two pages), and the Times used more than one page to print the story.
