Apparently taken in 1962 and clearly in London docks, looks like the Royal Docks. The name board on the Shaw Savill is decipherable but can't pick it as yet, but the class of ship will narrow it down. Working on it !

Shaw Savill ship built prior to 1950 if that is any help.

North side Royal Albert Dock. Probably WAIPAWA (1934-67). Sisters WAIWERA and WAIRANGI had signal mast aft of bridge.

Yes, if you carefully zoom in on the name board, 'Waipawa' would fit.

Its prior to the Federal funnel change.
The Piako was my last deep sea vessel for the NZSCo.
Joined her in London 27 Jan 1969 as 1st Refrigeration Engineer for an extended MANZ Run and left her again in London on 26 March 1970.
My first introduction to a Freon 12 refrigeration plant, also everything in the engine room. Refrigeration machinery on the port side, evap-room on the starboard side. No Jnr engineer homeward bound (6 on 6 off) and we also had the Magregor hatches to look after.
A big change from the Otaki in which I spent nearly 2 years.
The Piako was a bit on the big side (reefer wise) at 450,850 c.f.R. for the Manz run.

P.S.
We did a day & a night watch in port, a very loose arrangement.

Piako was just a tiddler Tom!
Waipawa, built 1934 by Harland & Wolff Belfast, second of the three original Empire Food Ships boasted 528,485 cfR and 232,571 non insulated. Originally carried 12 passengers as well.

From all accounts the Waipawa was named after the town I live in - Waipawa. The ships bell hangs on the wall by the stage at our local school. Photo of the bell in my photos.
