From the Window of Jones of Jermyn Street c. 1850

Once upon a time in Arcadia between the years 1845 and 1852 Colonel F.S. Bowring of the Royal Engineers walked into Jones of Jermyn Street and bought a leather and pigskin fly wallet.  Over one hundred and fifty years later little record can be found of Col. Bowring but his wallet survives albeit in pieces and can be seen in the shop window of my website where it is also for sale to a lady or a gentlemen of taste.
