LICENSED VICTUALLERS PICNIC. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 26 October 1895

LICENSED VICTUALLERS' PICNIC. For many years the licensed victuallers of the city and suburbs have held an annual picnic, which they and their families always make a point of attending. Although it has been said Adelaide is a city of churches and hotels, tbe proprietors of the latter buildings are not very numerous, bo that the licensed victuallers picnic is one of the smallest of the many annual gatherings held. Perhaps it is for this reason that the outing is generally one of the mo3t enjoyable of the year; joviality reigns supreme ; the interest in the day's pro ceedings is kept up from first to last, and the longest day does not seem to be a bit too long. The anxiety which sometimes occurs through the visits of the police to licensed premises at inconvenient hours, and the en quiries and tests made by Customs officials as to the strength of the spirits sold, are thrust on one side, and one and all are bent upon making the most of the outing. The 1895 picnic was held on Wednesday...
