Seen on a side door of Egglesburn Chapel 1872. A spirit of an earlier time, the inscription goes back to a nineteenth century society created for the purpose of helping working men. The society produced a newspaper and encouraged workers to be conscientious, hardworking and to seek opportunities to improve themselves educationally. However, the society did not merely hector the great British workman but provided practical support in the way of facilities and resources such as books and reading rooms to accomplish this objective.

Good narrative, Johnny - the Victorians may have been many things, but altruistic was certainly top of the list

Nice one for Zeigeist and very well shot. I particularly like the tree shadows, like the shadows of time.
