Robert Browning Settlement

Inscription

{In a cross formation on a shield:}
Alls Love, Alls Law.
{Surrounded by:}
Robert Browning Settlement. 

The quotation is from Browning's poem 'Saul':

"I have gone the whole round of creation: I saw and I spoke:
I, a work of God's hand for that purpose, received in my brain
and pronounced on the rest of his hand-work - returned him again
his creation's approval or censure: I spoke as I saw:
I report, as a man may of God's work - all's love, yet all's law". 

Site: Robert Browning Settlement, Booth and pensions (3 memorials)

SE17, Walworth Road, 195

In 1958 this building opened as Herbert Morrison House, 195, Walworth Road - the Labour Party headquarters until the 1990s.

At some point in the past its address seems to have been 3 Browning Street.

Previously called York Street, in 1937 the street was named for Robert Browning who, in 1812, was baptised in the nonconformist chapel shown on this 1895 map
