Castle & Co. 171-3 York Road, Battersea

Once upon a time in Arcadia, in the year 1939 to be precise, ladies and gentlemen abroad on the streets south of the river and with a spare coupon in their pocket would make haste to the premises of Castle & Co. at 171 to 173 York Road in the district of Battersea.  There, they would be able to buy items of good quality fishing tackle that had been exported to them from Sowerbutts on Commercial Street in the district of London known as E.1.

Should you be a lady or a gentleman abroad on the streets of London with Maundy Money or coupons at your disposal you are invited to visit my stall which appears between 8am and 3pm on Thursdays only at Spitalfields Antiques Market on Commercial Street where I still receive items from Sowerbutts, Castle and other lost tackle shops and display them upon the velvet for the delight of and purchase by passers-by.
