Formed in 1903, the Tariff Reform League supported Joseph Chamberlain's scheme for preferential trade treaties within the British Empire. At its peak it included many local branches, including women's sections.

WE ARE THE ASHBURTON U3A (DEVON, UK) SOCIAL HISTORY GROUP
Next meeting: Thursday  22nd August 2019. 10.30am

We choose broad topics to investigate, and members of the group bring information, pictures and objects along to the meetings to share. Our current theme is Clothes and Fashion.

The website is primarily a collection of research that we undertook in our first two years. It will continue to preserve individuals' research, but not on the scale previously achieved. The list of resources will be added to as before.

Click on the links above to see the various pages. Some have a sub-menu.

We hope you enjoy your visit.
