Group    From 1837 

Chelsea Temperance Society

Categories: Social Welfare

Founded 1837 with Sydney Hall in Pond Place. At Exciting we learn "In about 1906 they published a set of cards showing their original Sydney Hall and vacant site nearby at the southern apex of Bury Street {now Bury Walk}, together with architect’s drawing for a new building. The new Sydney Hall was opened in June 1908; it is now {still standing and} home to the Oratory School." Our picture, which also comes from Exciting, is a photograph of the inside of the Hall which we think must be the new one.
