Rechabites poster from 1913


This Independent Order of Rechabites poster-calendar from 1913 includes portraits of temperance leaders W. A. Platt and W. Johnson. Christian temperance groups adopted the name 'Rechabites' from the Biblical descendants of Rechab through Jonadab or Jehonadab; the latter forbade his descendants from drinking wine.
