Dora Hannan in Portsmouth - the 1910's, in the morning
from Those Happy Highways: an autobiography, pages 8-8cont.:
On Sundays we were dressed in our best clothes […] and off we went to Sunday School mornings and afternoons in the Wesleyan Methodist Church. We went there because it was much nearer than the Parish Church where we had been christened […] We were always very keen to keep up regualr [sic] attendance at Sunday School as we were then rewarded with an outing into the country in the summer. I liked going too, for the singing, of which there was an abundance, good hearty hymns with tunes that were easy to learn and with which we were really able to let ourselves go, and enjoy.
