Arthur’s Mission is an attractive building in Snowsfields, Bermondsey. It has a large plaque in the middle of the front elevation with the inscription ‘ARTHUR’S MISSION SNOW’S-FIELDS 1863 – 1893’. There are three further plaques: a small one inscribed ‘FEED MY LAMBS’ and two further ones that commemorate the laying of stones in the new building on 9 May 1893 by Mr Thomas Hoyland on behalf of the teachers of the old Snow’s Fields Ragged School and by Mr S R Pearce, Superintendent of the Metropolitan Tabernacle Sunday School, to commemorate the Ragged School work carried out in the neighbourhood.

The rears of housing in Snowfields, numbers 136, 137, 138. By the end of the 19th century, the living conditions in Bermondsey were awful. There were known examples of nine people living in one room and one tap serving 25 houses with no sanitation. Conditions remained bad well into the 20th century. C 1894.

Just to add to the Old Miller of Mansfield Pub posts, it looks as though it was possibly in two different locations. The first location, which I think is your picture in 2017, is looking down Snowfields, on the corner with Great Maze Pond(left) where Guys Hospital is today, Crosby Row being back behnd on the right, as freddie says.
The second location being on the corner of Snowfields and Kipling Street down on the right, where The Miller is today. (2007)

In Snowsfields, we used to sing through the Air Vent:
Barnetts sell fish
Three'hapence a dish
Dont Buy Dont Buy it
It stinks when you fry it
Never forgotten even taught my grandchildren that one!
Ah Happy Days

Same corner as above.(1887).
The Angel public house Bermondsey, 1887, View of the pub on the corner of Snowsfields & Crosby Row. I think at the time, the picture would have been taken from then, Kings Street, later to become Newcomen Street. Before the pub in the 1860s, there was a school on the corner.
