To gain admittance one must have invented a unique means of earning a living and the subsequent trade being the main source of income.The framing narrative by "Cherub" Swinburne describes his quest for The Club of Queer Trades with his friend Basil Grant, a retired judge, and Rupert Grant, a private detective who is Basil's younger brother.
