Temperance Society Certificate from St Mary's Church, early 20s. The Vicar of the time, the Revd. Sam Bryson, would be amazed that there is now only one pub (Walmeseley Arms, Spring View) open along Warrington Road, compared with the dozen or more leading his flock astray when the Certificate was awarded.
A very English-looking St George encourages the recipient (Olive Hart's father)to continue his struggle against the demon drink!
