The sight of drunken men staggering about in the street was quite common, especially at night and at week ends [sic].This is hardly surprising when all licensed houses were open from 6A.M. until 12 o’clock midnight. The best beer was only two pence [.]

 

At that time the Salvation Army was really fighting drink and degradation in the slum areas […] [They] pitched outside the pubs on Friday and Saturday nights, summer and winter, in the foulest of weather [.]

 

[...] Street-corner boys and hooligans never interfered with a Salvation Army meeting. What other organisation would take their musical instruments, sing hymns, and hold a meeting by the light of street gas lamps and a lantern on a pole, between a public house, a public urinal, and a fried fish shop!
