Mermaid Works

Once upon a time in Arcadia, most probably on a Thursday between-the-wars Ogden Smiths Fishing Tackle opened their 'model factory specially built for making High-Class Fishing Tackle' in the district of London Subtopia known as Croydon.  It was named Mermaid Works and supplied each of Ogden Smiths Tackle Shops across the metropolis.  Tackle dealers were encouraged to 'Consult the work's manager for anything special in the way of fishing tackle'.

Sadly, in the year of Arcadia 2012, Mermaid Works is no longer producing High Class Fishing Tackle, nor fishing tackle of any description as it has long since closed down along with the many Ogden Smiths shops which used to cheer the capital through life.  However, you may visit me at my stall on at Spitalfields Antiques Market where between the hours of eight in the morning and three in the afternoon on Thursdays only I sell Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul, some of which was made in Mermaid Works.  You may also consult me for anything special in the way of fishing tackle that you may require.  Thank-you.
