'A Bridge from the Worse to the Better': The Gothenburg public-house in Scotland

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A mid-nineteenth century liquor licensing innovation from Sweden found its way to Scotland by the late nineteenth century. During a period of intense interest in temperance, this profit-sharing system became, for a brief period, an experiment which sought to change drinking habits and enhance community infrastructure. Although short-lived, its concentration in the east-coast of Scotland is suggestive of a distinct cultural milieu.
