Farlow's of Panton Street & Pall Mall

Once upon at time in Arcadia, in the lead up to Christmas, ladies and gentlemen wishing to send a little goodwill in the post would look no further than Farlow's who carried an 'attractive collection of Christmas Cards for Fishermen'.  The cards were advertised in The Fishing Gazette and included 'new designs and reproductions of fishing prints, entirely original and most distinctive'.  Farlow's has since moved its premises to No. 9 Pall Mall and can be found under the steady hand of the sartorialist Mr. Max Sardi.  You are urged to call in on him should you be on the Mall and wish him the goodwill of the season for he is a gentleman of the first order.

Should you find yourself in the district of London E.1. on a Thursday and in need of a Christmas Card you are urged to visit me at my premises a stall in Spitalfields Antiques Market where, between the hours of 8am and 3, I sell Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul and where this year also I have for sale a small issue my own Christmas Card designed by artists and printers Mr. Martin Clark and Miss Anneliese Appleby of Tilley Printing.
