Barnett's of Frying Pan Alley E.1

Once upon a time in Arcadia and most notably on Thursdays in spring up until the year 1962 when the premises closed, ladies and gentlemen wishing to smoke salmon they had caught themselves on rod and line would take them to Barnett's of Frying Pan Alley in the district of London known as E.1.

Today in this the year of Arcadia and other promises 2013 there are still individuals that will smoke your salmon and many are known to loiter in the district of E.1 on Thursdays where between the hours civilised of 8am until 3pm I have my stall selling Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul in Spitalfields Market and where we celebrate ladies and gentlemen who catch salmon and other fish on rod and line and where, too, we salute the frying pan.
