A riotously convivial day at Spitalfields yesterday with callers from all corners of the kingdom and amidst the ocean of tea a passing gentleman with a carrier bag containing the 93rd Edition of the Farlow's Tackle Catalogue published in the year of Arcadia 1938.  Most fitting as the last visitor as I was packing up was the elegant Mr. Max Sardi, manager of Farlows, and author of the inspirational Sanforized.
