The McAuley Water Street Mission

video
One of the pictures from the Smith Projects history of a previous post mentioned The McAuley Mission, page 15 in the pdf file I had never heard of it.
I thought this would be apropos. Some of the images are of the Mission and its history ans some come from the library of congress and show a depression era flea market on Pike Slip
from Guys and Dolls
Follow the fold and stray no more
Stray no more, stray no more.
Put down the bottle and we'll say no more
Follow, follow, the fold.
Before you take another swallow!
Follow the fold and stray no more
Stray no more, stray no more.
Tear up your poker deck and play no more.
Follow, follow, the fold.
To the meadows, where the sun shines
Out of the darkness
And the cold.
And the pain and shame in which you wallow.
Follow the fold and stray no more
Stray no more, stray no more.
If you're a sinner and you pray no more
Follow, follow, the fold.
