As listed in E.W.Pettifer's The Court Resumes, here's a list of the convictions for drunkenness in the Borough of Doncaster for the early part of the 20th century:

1907 - 456
1908 - 497

1911 - 926
1912 - 1303
1913 - 1154
1914 - 1320

Pettifer explains that at this point State control of licensing laws kicks in limiting hours, fixed prices and legislation against treating.

1915 - 854
1917 - 448
1919 - 84

The demobolisation after the war is the main reason for this low result, but it then continues...
