David Binding (Canada) informs me that "This is the Old Missions to Seamen building on the corner of Dock View Road and Casteland Street? The side facing the docks housed a canteen serving tea and light refreshments and there was also a snooker table where I learned to waste my time profitably. The chapel entrance is further to the left up the side street, and features a bell tower with a cross on the top of the spire. The chapel was small, but cozy and comfortable. Although the building was closed many years ago, it brings back many fond memories for me.
