T.H Sowerbutts & Son of Commercial Street

Once Upon a Time in Arcadia with the exception of a Thursday afternoon when they closed early, ladies and gentlemen finding themselves at a loose end on Commercial Street, in the district of London known as E1, would call in at T.H. Sowerbutts & Son, the renowned Fishing Rod and Tackle Specialist who were situated at No. 151.

Today in Arcadia it is Thursday, and soon it will be the afternoon, but this morning up until gone lunch, as on other Thursdays you are welcome to visit my stall in Spitalfields Antiques Market on Commercial Street, less than 5 minutes walk from Sowerbutts old premises.  I may not be as renowned a Fishing Rod or Tackle Specialist but I do have a rather fine selection of Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul for sale and am always keen to meet people with memories of Sowerbutts.
