NOTE: There is a lot of flexibility in this game, allowing you to go to various sundry locations in haphazard order. In fact, the order that I went through the game when writing the walkthru is not the order in which I played the first time - hindsight (or notes) is such a wonderful thing. So, this is less a walkthru than a script of what to do to get past a scene or puzzle.
Items that what you can acquire are in bold, while poignant information or new map locations are underlined.

I suspected a compromising picture was missing from Lawton's album, but had assumed it was something that would make Lady Cordelia break off the engagement. Yet, when Holmes confronts Major Mysteray he refers to the picture explicitly. Overall, though - what fun! Game Boomers - Game Cheats, and Walkthroughs for Boomers and the rest of you guys!
