On the Demon Drink

By Carolineld @carolineld
If lectures on malt liquors and fermentation interest you, it may seem a pity that this particular series happened back in 1838. However, if you were hoping for a few samples to taste you would have been sorely disappointed: these were organised by the New British & Foreign Temperance Society. Among the later talks was the intriguing 'non-existence of alcohol in any natural production', perhaps not the most scientifically sound account!
These were the early days of the temperance movement, and the Society had been founded only a few years before. It had been in Deptford for at least two years, and the lecture series suggests that it had attracted adherents in the area.
