Lionel Andrews of Shoreditch

Once upon a time in Arcadia and especially during those years when it was forecast to rain ladies and gentlemen finding themselves to the north and east of the City would have no doubt called upon Lionel Andrews at 133 Shoreditch High Street and purchased a pair of his bespoke "Breast-Hi" Waders.

Today, Lionel Andrews has long since closed the doors to his world of rubber but those of you still in search of rain are advised to visit my good self a.k.a Andrews of Arcadia at my stall a short walk from Shoreditch at Spitalfields Antiques Market on Commercial Street (District E1) where on Thursdays I dispense information about where rain is reported to have fallen as well as selling fine items of Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul.  In the lock-up I have a surplus of "Breast-Hi Waders" but cannot guarantee they will be in your size so call me in advance on field telephone 07980 274 383 if you are anticipating getting into the river and are in need of something to wear.
