When at London Bridge

Once upon a time in Arcadia, and especially on a Thursday, ladies and gentlemen finding themselves at London Bridge in the district of London known as SE1 would pop in to see the naturalist, cousin of Yehudi Menuhin and associate of Jack Hargreaves, John Gordon Miller who, along with his father, ran a number of kiosks and stalls as Tobacco and Fishing Tackle Dealers and whose London Bridge premises were at No. 34 Railway Approach.

Should you find yourself standing on London Bridge today you are advised not to look for John Gordon Miller as the business is sadly no longer there.  Instead, using the sun to navigate, turn in a northerly direction and walk towards Spitalfields Antiques Market, where on Thursdays between the hours of 8am and on occasion (such as today) as late as 4pm I buy and sell Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul.
