Would that be a Bank boat and a City boat in the background? Rule Britannia...those were the days.

Could be one of the Shirrabank class, but the other vessel appears to have a bluish hull & red funnel which could indicate Mitsui Sempaku K.K. before amalgamating with OSK, but wrong funnel colour. Another option is `K` line also Japanese, but profile not quite right.
