Sherlock Holmes Museum

The museum is tourist attraction created at a not-quite-right address on Baker Street and has been outfitted with furniture and objects matching descriptions in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories. The corner of this room contains the chemicals and equipment needed for forensic analysis of items from a crime scene. Can you match up the items in the museum with their illustrations from the Chemistry and Microscopes galleries on the Clipart ETC website? It may help to scroll down to the second, enlarged photo.
