Down House Mission Temperance Pledge Certificate, 1901

This 1901 certificate documents Mr. G. Kenward's pledge to abstain from all intoxicating alcoholic drinks in the "Band of Hope" at Scotland's Down House Mission. It is dated May, 1901, and signed by the secretary or registrar H. J. Wood. The temperance movement was a strong social force in the late 19th and 20th centuries, and this certificate indicates its presence in Scotland at the turn of the century. This item was provided by Richard Shaver during the September 17th, 2010 Digitization Day held in Oakland, Ontario by the County of Brant Public Library.
