"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:

Looks like Tower Bridge.
