Artist's Description

The Sailors’ Home in Leith Harbour was built in 1883 and used to provide accommodation for sailors whose ships were in port. The Home contained comfortable rooms for each rank, a canteen, a low cost clothing shop, recreational rooms and a chapel. It was an innovation in social care at a time when many workers lived in overcrowded slums. The angel in the stonework above the door was an emblem for the seamen’s mission.

It is now a Malmaison Hotel.
