Excerpt from First Fifty Years of St. Cuthbert's Co-Operative Association Limited, 1859-1909

HE jubilee of any organisation is an event which inclines all who are interested in it to be reminiscent. No one can take part in those functions that are held to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the birth of St. Cuthbert's co-operative Association without thinking of its founders, of their hopes and fears, and, above all, of their unbending courage. They started their work almost without any resources. True. They were well endowed with intelligence and a strong belief in the principles they had espoused. If this book, then, throws some little light on the Association's early history, by recounting the many difficulties its various committees have surmounted and its gradual growth in usefulness to the citizens of Edinburgh, the reminiscences may encourage working-men to hold fast to the principles of Co-operation, and face with confidence any difficulties that may confront them.

The gathering together of the material for the purpose of writing this history has been no easy task. It is interesting to know that one or two of the original members are still living, who have been able to contribute from memory some valuable information; but it is from the old books and documents of the Association that most of our information has been gleaned.
