Looks like BENMHOR of 1949 which was built as PENRITH CASTLE, but my collection photo shows her with a shorter funnel with protruding exhaust.

Funny, not been there since the mid 70's, but knew immediately where this was taken.
Used to load latex bales there I think, on the Benledi.
The agents office which was part of the landing stage had a white cockatoo, the states this poor bird got into after returning seamen used to give him beers.
