R.G. Edwards & Son, 11 Rangoon Street E.C.3

Once upon a time in Arcadia, most notably on a Thursday in Rangoon Street in the district of London known as East Central 3, R.G. Edwards & Son would open their doors to passing ladies and gentlemen and offer them new reels and rods at prices which they declared were 'sensational'.  At the same time their resident representatives with vans would set off on their mission which was defined as, 'London and Home Counties Covered as Hitherto'.

If you are a lady or a gentleman abroad in the district of East Central 3 you are at liberty to feel sad and baleful for R.G. Edwards & Son no longer open their doors and their vans no longer circumnavigate London town.  However, do not be sad for too long as on Thursdays only my own van takes me to my stall at Spitalfields Antiques Market where I unload boxes of Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul at 8am and sell them off to the velvet until 3pm at prices which on occasion have been known to be sensational.
