Description: A black billiard player in the recreation rooms of the Queen Victoria Seamen's Rest in the 1920s. The Seamen's Rest in the East India Dock Road was founded in the 1890s as the Seamen's Mission of the Wesleyan Methodist Church. The institution still survives. It ministers to the spiritual needs of seamen and their families and promotes the social and moral welfare of seafarers, and anyone connected with the port.
