Dora Bargate in Bermondsey, London - in the middle of the 1910's

from Untitled: Dora Bargate memoir, page 9:

[The hymn 'Jesus bids us shine' includes the line 'you in your small corner and I in mine']


My initiation to religion was at a place called The Manor Mission, in Bermondsey. 


Here, I joined the kindergarten where we sat on little chairs placed in rows, were expected to behave, and sung such things as “You in your small corner and I in mine”, “Down came the raindrops on a cloudy day” and “All things bright and beautiful”.
