Findlaters or Tallons

The "Adam Findlaters or Dan Tallons" that Bloom imagines his country curates blossoming into were purveyors of alcohol whose considerable business success prompted aspirations to join the ruling class. But Findlater's was certainly not a rags-to-riches story, and there is no evidence that Tallon's was either.
