T.H Sowerbutts & Son of Commercial Street

Once upon a time in Arcadia an angler finding themselves at a loss on a Thursday might have found time to visit T.H Sowerbutts & Son Fishing Tackle Shop at 151 Commercial Street London E1.  Provided they arrived before 1 o'clock, when the shop closed for a half day, they would have been assured a dour but nonetheless warm welcome.  Should you wish to buy fishing tackle on a Thursday in Commercial Street in the year 2011 you are advised that Sowerbutts is long gone but you can be assured of a cheerful and warm welcome at my stall on Spitalfields Antiques Market where I stay open until 3 o'clock.
