"How about this, Watson?" Holmes asked, handing me a
piece of paper.

"It is a binary code," I replied.

"Come on, Watson," said Holmes. "Computers are far from
invented. In addition, computers with combinations of 32,
64 or 128 bits, a power of two. I count an odd number
of digits. But the number of digits is a clear indication. "

I stared at the paper. I wrote the digits down and tried
to discover something.

"I see it!" I cried suddenly. "And it is here in London!"

"You're beginning to learn it," laughed Holmes. "Let's take a hansom and
go there! "

What does the code say and how do you read it?

@whimsical,
There are 361 digits. 361=19^2. Rearranging the digits into 19 lines of 19 digits yields this:
Code:
0000000000000000000
0000000000000000000
0000000000000000000
0000100000000010000
0001110000000111000
0001111111111111000
0001110000000111000
0001110000000111000
0001110000000111000
0001110000000111000
0001110100010111000
0001111000001111000
1111110000000111111
0001110000000111000
0001110000000111000
0000000000000000000
0000000000000000000
0000000000000000000
0000000000000000000

Looks like Tower Bridge.
