Abstract

Drawing on accounts of the period, examines role of drink in social and working life. Alcohol was prominent in most leisure, cultural and sporting activities, regardless of class, while drink usage was also widespread in many occupations and business activities. It also contributed to violence and crime. Much of this was increasingly subject to local and national scrutiny - and, ultimately, as elsewhere, legislation to control sale and consumption.
