Cargate Press

The publishing arm of the WMMS and MMS for half a century from the early 1920s, its name was derived from the two London addresses of the WMMS at 7 Carlisle Avenue and 24 Bishopsgate. Some 250 titles were published, including many accounts of mission and church growth overseas, biographies and socio-political studies in the colonial period - some written for an adult and some for a youthful readership; also plays, poems, prayers and such practical subjects as A Handbook for Women's Work and Running a Film Show.
