Fascinating Hardy’s brochure added to the Collection

A Hardy’s brochure just added to the Documents section offers a fascinating insight into the commercial empire that reached worldwide from its Alnwick base.

Hardy’s fishing tackle in the 1930’s boasted nearly 80 agencies and offices across the British Isles and every part of the world, addresses such as Chicago, Pall Mall London, Nairobi and Manchuria. The brochure is centred around the intricate process of making what they proudly claim were the “finest salmon hooks in the world”.
