Hansom Wheels: A short film by Linda Robinson


We are lucky to have Linda Robinson, a professor of film studies at UW-Whitewater, as one of the wonderful members of the Original Tree Worshippers. Linda made this documentary about the Hansom Wheels of Columbia, South Carolina, as a love letter to her parents, Robert and Myrtle Robinson, and as an introduction to Sherlockian fun for those who have yet to discover the Great Detective. 


Bob Robinson, who passed away in 2012,  was one of the founding members of the Hansom Wheels. This documentary was filmed at the February 2003 meeting of the Hansom Wheels and at Bob and Myrtle's home, and it features artifacts from Bob's collection of Sherlockiana.
