Tweedbank at Lascelles Wharf, Geelong in the early 1950s. She was probably discharging phosphatic rock from Nauru and Ocean Island, or possibly sulphur from Galveston. These materials were used to manufacture superphosphate fertilizer in the nearby plant. Bank Line ships were frequent visitors to Geelong in those days, either to discharge the above materials, or to load bulk wheat.
Some details : Built 1930 by Workman Clark, 5626 GRT, 426.7'x57.4'.
Twin screw, 2xWorkman-Sulzer 2 stroke 5 cylinder engines, total 4500 BHP.

allanc I can't tell you how good it is to see photos with a bit of description and or history, it just seems to make the photo so much more interesting. Thank you for your consideration.

Agree with thunderd. Its very frustrating to see a great photo with just the name of the ship . It does make the photo more interesting. I understand that we dont always have access to information, but if its there, please use it.

Very gratifying comments! I have quite a few more of these ancient pics, which go back to my student days, and if I can dig up the necessary background I will certainly do so. I am very fortunate to have these photos, plus a few of my own, taken at about the same time, also I am coming to grips with my scanner! Tweedbank is the best so far, and I must confess that I'm not entirely sure how I managed that!
Regards every one,
Allan

This vessel was built in Belfast by Workman Clark not Harland and Wolff.

Thanks 'The Yard', you are right. according to my source September 1930, my source was 'Seventy Adventurous Years, The Story of the Bank Line 1885-1955', and I misread the entry,
I will correct my posting,
Thanks again,
Allan
