Four Patients playing billiards, Quex Park

Four hospital patients playing billiards in the Hall of Quex House, 1917. This billiards table was bought with the proceeds of a sale organised by the Powell-Cotton children, Diana aged 10, Mary aged 7 and Antoinette aged 4. The Hall of Quex House served as a recreation area for the patients of the hospital. The photograph was one of a number commissioned by Major Powell-Cotton from AH Siminson, photographer of St Lawrence, Ramsgate. It bears his embossing stamp in the bottom right corner. The Quex Park VAD Hospital opened on 15 October 1914 and closed on 31 January 1919. The hospital was run by Kent/178, the Birchington Detachment. The Commandant was Hannah Powell-Cotton (1881-1964), wife of Major Percy HG Powell-Cotton (1866-1940) of Quex Park, founder of the Powell-Cotton Museum. Date: 1917
