The exhibiton displays the letters of Lillie Duncan, who was a volunteer at the Mission to Seafarers' Ladies Harbour Lights Guild during the 20s and 30s.

feature piece in this month's Docklands News explains that Ms Duncan "[ignored] the ettiquette of her time. [maintaining] correspondence with at least seven seafarers she met at the mission, despite specific rules against such activity."
