This is an advertisement for the Tabard, which was a Temperance hotel in Walton on the Naze run by C. Woodroffe. During the late 19th Century the 'Temperance Movement' set up Cocoa Houses and Coffee Taverns, as well as hotels and boarding houses in an attempt to divert the working man away from the perils of drink. It was felt that too many working men were getting drunk at public houses and gin palaces. Workers were encouraged to bring their own food into the Temperance Houses, and to stay for as long as they liked making use of their facilities; reading newspapers and playing games.
