1889-90 Member's Ticket

A rare survival from the last days at The Spa, this fragile Member’s Ticket seems to have been issued to a Mr. Jno Colwell, although it’s very difficult to make out. The Rules are worth a read, especially Rule 6, the “two black ball” disqualification statement relating to potential election to the Club.*

[* Blackballing = a rejection in a traditional form of secret ballot, where a white ball or ballot constitutes a vote in support and a black ball signifies opposition.]
