J. Theobald and Company's extra special illustrated catalogue of magic lanterns, slides and apparatus (London: Theobald & Co., c.1893), 28

“This we have no hesitation in saying is one of the best temperance tales of the day, in which the boy, after his mother dies, which for the time sobers the father, who came home drunk the day before she passed away, tries to keep his father straight, but in a fury is one day struck with a blow, from which he never recovers; this eventually cured the father who bravely saves a ship's crew by sacrificing his own life in holding the helm of a ship on fire and taking her to land.
