A Paper Bag for the Soul

Once upon a time in Arcadia on Thursdays-Between-the-Wars, ladies and gentlemen looking for Fishing Tackle in the district of Birmingham 5 would proceed to 55/57 Worcester Street where having passed the time of day at the premises of Fred King and passed notes and coin over the counter their purchases would be presented to them in a paper bag finely emblazoned in blue ink with the Fred King legend.

Should you be a lady or a gentleman abroad on the streets of Birmingham 5 or indeed any other district in any other town with good links by railway to London you are advised that I practice the art of putting purchased items of Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul into paper bags emblazoned in blue ink with their own legend at my stall in Spitalfields Antiques Market on Commercial Street in the district of London known as E.1 where you are also welcome to pass the time of day between 8am and 3pm on Thursdays only.   Thank-you.
