|Description: A group of children outside the Queen Victoria Seamen's Rest on Jeremiah Street, Poplar, c. 1900. They were gathered presumably in connection with an event such as a special class or a presentation. The Queen Victoria Seamen's Rest was founded by the Wesleyan Methodist Church, and provided spiritual and practical help for seafarers and their families. The institution is still active, using the original building on Jeremiah Street and a post-war building around the corner on the East India Dock Road.|
