This leaflet was produced in 1948 to commemorate Elizabeth Ann Lewis, who became a driving force of the teetotal Mission, known as the ‘Blue Ribbon Army,’ which she
introduced to Blackburn in 1882. This drew on the non-conformist Gospel Temperance Movement.

Mrs. Lewis, "The Drunkard's Friend."
Born at Little Drayton, Shopshire,
on March 10th, 1848.
Died in Blackburn, Lancashire, on
March 14th, 1924.
