BLANKETS AND SOUP

Free soup had been available to the poor of Devonport at 45 Granby Street as early as the 1890s.  It came courtesy of the Devonport Soup Society, who employed the building's caretaker, Mr William E Smith.

At the same address in 1914 free blankets were also available from the Devonport Blanket Society.  Its secretary was Miss E C Glinn.
