Old Photograph Temperance Hotel Inveraray Argyll Scotland

Old photograph of a vintage car outside the of the late 18th century Temperance Hotel on Front Street East in Inveraray, Scotland. The Temperance Hotel is a former hotel located near the shores of Loch Fyne in the Scottish town of Inveraray. It is is located opposite the ship dock on the corner house between Front Street and Main Street. Today it is used as a residential building. As it was a Temperance Hotel it was not permitted to sell alcohol. The Temperance Scotland Act 1913 is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom under which voters in small local areas in Scotland were enabled to hold a poll to vote on whether their area remained " wet " or went " dry, " that is, whether alcoholic drinks should be permitted or prohibited. The decision was made on a simple majority of votes cast. The Act was a result of the strong temperance movement in Scotland before the First World War. Brewers and publicans formed defence committees to fight temperance propaganda.
