Auckland Port

Auckland Port, looking over the tug stack. Has to be in the 60s. (I was on land on the 70s)

Come on you ship wizard identifiers. Left to right it looks like, NZS, Blue Star, Federal, NZS. Not sure (Scandinavian?) then I'm really struggling with the small ones, a Union SS perhaps facing us?

Extreme right - a Richardson & Co coaster, possibly PARERA, next is a Northern Company ship, probably either TAWANUI or PORANUI.

Note the old Auckland Harbour Board tug colours - the funnel must be Te Awhina or WC Daldy ?

Dont think its Daldy.
She has a flange around the top of the stack. The stack looks a bit small in diameter for it to be hers as well as the two atmosphere pipes where Daldy has one.

I must agree with Baroona, isn't that the ferry building on the far left, should be on the far right if I remember right, but then its been a long while ago since I was in Aukland, 1951 to be exact
