‘Metropolitan’ in Sunday School Chronicle

“Hackney Road, E. - Union Crescent Sunday School. - About two hundred scholars with their teachers and friends spent a very happy and pleasing evening on Monday, Jan. 3rd, when the annual children's festival took place. After a good tea the young people were favoured with a magic lantern entertainment given by the secretary (Mr. A. Jackson) entitled, 'An Evening in Picture Land,' illustrated by a number of beautifully coloured slides lent by the Sunday School Union. At intervals hymns were sung and fruites distributed. Before leaving, a few cheering words were spoken by the president, Mr. Girling.”
