Findlaters

In Penelope Molly thinks of buying flowers the next morning from "Lambes there beside Findlaters." Miss Alicia Lambe ran a florist's shop at 33 Upper O'Connell Street, next to the massive Findlater's business at numbers 29-32, which sold Irish and English whiskeys and ales, French and German wines, Spanish ports, dry grains, boxed and bottled fruits, baked goods, spices, teas, cocoas, roasted coffee beans, oils, honeys and syrups, jams and jellies, pickles, anchovies, smoked bacon, eggs, butter, produce, and much more. Earlier, in Calypso, Bloom thinks of one of the prominent family owners of the company when he imagines poor pub servers from the country blossoming into "Adam Findlaters or Dan Tallons." Far from starting poor, Adam Findlater was born into a long-established and thriving company, and he capably contributed to its continuing expansion.
