Sons of Temperance Friendly Society

Sons of Temperance Friendly Society, 176-177 Blackfriars Road, Borough of Southwark, London SE1, 2014 • Former HQ of a 19th-century financial co-operative for teetotallers, now being wound down; they sold the premises in 2011 and relocated to Hampshire (article here). It’s one of the few interesting old buildings on this concrete canyon that development-crazy Southwark Council haven’t allowed to be knocked down (only because it’s listed).
