VPRS-12549 Page 1-e1375682299110.jpg While Squizzy was seeing Dolly Gray, his new partner Lorna Kelly took him along to her Women's Temperance meeting.Known as the Women’s Christian Temperance Union Victoria Inc, organised in May 1891, they quote “re-affirm our total abstinence stand and our opposition to the use of beverage alcohol, tobacco and all other harmful drugs, as well as all immoral and degrading practices”.
