    How to Use This Series

    There is no index for this series. Entries are arranged sequentially by case number and chronologically by date of hearing. Researchers will need to browse through entries to obtain information which includes the name of the licensee or premises applying for the temporary or booth licence; occasions, locations and dates for which the licence was valid; result of the applications.

    Scope of this series

    This series consists of registers created to record the granting of temporary or booth licences for premises located in the Shepparton Licensing Area. The date range of this series is not certain. The records transferred in the P1 consignment have a date range of 1960 to 1978 and, based on those records, the series date range has been determined as ?1960 to ?1978.

    Licence Registers of Temporary / Booth Licences

    Licence registers are generally bound volumes with entries recorded across double pages in a column format. Column headings vary but information recorded may include the following:

    case number; setting down fee; licence/permit/receipt number; licensing district or area; name of applicant; name and location of premises; type of application; licence/permit fee; result of application; conditions attached to granted application; remarks.

    Entries are followed, either after each entry or after entries for a particular date or period, by the signatures of the persons empowered to grant the applications.

    Provision has existed since the earliest legislation in Victoria for temporary licences to be issued to allow liquor to be sold at public sporting events, amusements, fairs etc, subject to conditions imposed by the granting court. The conditions included limitations on the hours and occasions on specific dates at specific places that liquor could be sold for each temporary licence granted. In modern times the licence has applied to specific booths from which the liquor was to be sold.

    At different times temporary or booth licences could be granted to holders of hotel keepers' (previously known as publicans' and victuallers' licences), railway refreshment room and restaurant licences for this purpose. There has also been a provision for a temporary packet licence to be issued to masters of vessels.

    The temporary licence was replaced by the booth licence under the Liquor Control Act 1968 (No.7965) which came into operation in 1969. The booth licence was in turn replaced by the limited licence as defined in the Liquor Control Act 1987 (No.97 of 1987) in 1988.
