Army & Navy Stores

Once upon a time in Arcadia, on a Thursday and on any other day of the working week, the angler finding themselves at a loss could make haste to the Army & Navy Stores in Victoria Street, London SW1.  There, in the fishing tackle department they could have purchased this lost item of Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul, described in the shop's catalogue as 'A superior quality velvet grain real leather dark brown pocket book cast wallet with Chamois leather pockets and parchment flaps.'  Should you find yourself at a loss today I suggest you make haste to my stall at Spitalfields Antiques Market, where until 15:00hrs I will be selling this wallet and other items like it and drinking tea at intervals in honour of the lost tackle shops of London town.
