Once upon a time in Arcadia in the era Victoria Arcadia ladies and gentlemen in All Parts of the World in search of High Class Fishing Rods and Tackle would take the carriage to Kingston-on-Thames and visit there the premises of John R. Richardson.
Should you be a lady or a gentleman in Any Part of the World in search of High Class Fishing Rods and Tackle today do not be tempted by the knock-down delights of The Devil's Window come instead to the district of London known as E.1. where on Thursdays only at Spitalfields Antiques Market on Commercial Street between the hours of 8am and 3pm I sell Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul from my stall as I have done for the last nine years past. I look forward to your good company.

All roads lead via Bromyard to the fair town of Ludlow-in-Salop as tomorrow and Saturday I shall be stalling out in the bar of Ludlow Racecourse with a gang of trade and private collectors as part of Mullocks Auction of Antique & Modern Fishing Tackle and Related Items. If you are travelling the iron road to the auction I look forward to your good company over a cup of tea and a black pudding sandwich.
