3rd National Camping & Outdoor Life Exhibition - Olympia

Once upon a time in Arcadia and most probably on a Thursday a global event happened which was organised without the need of fuss and with little thought to jamborees and which brought tens of thousands of visitors to the city known as London, namely the 3rd National Camping and Outdoor Life Exhibition.  This gathering of household names including the legendary and immaculately dressed Barrie Welham who is still alive and thriving today on the South Coast, was held at Olympia in the region of Arcadia London West.  Visitors to the exhibition were able to witness television and radio commentator Harvey Torbett casting in the purpose built Exhibition Pool and meet other anglers in the aptly named Anglers' Corner.

Should you wish to relive the wild abandoned days of the 3rd National Camping and Outdoor Life Exhibition you are advised to visit me today at my stall in Anglers Corner at Spitalfields Antiques Market where I sell Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul and where all the talk will be of the Exhibition Pool and the cut of Barrie Welham's Dreadnought trousers.
