Ye olde photographic clues to deduce

Scotland Yard Photo Crimes

In this Holmes era mystery series, readers review a comic-strip style arrangement of photographs to deduce puzzle solutions. Each photograph has people in period costumes, much like a 'Clue' aesthetic, acting out the mystery, with clues hidden in the pictures and text. The photos are quite dated - like a simple Murdery Mystery party kind of feel - but the mysteries are interesting and it spawned 3 editions over several years.
