Bird's-Eye View of Aquitania

An unusual view of the deck of RMS Aquitania, taken from the top of the foremast. Note the double-tier of lifeboats on the davits, as well as the row of collapsible lifeboats inboard, the presence of which were undoubtedly influenced by the fate of the Titanic!

Could this have been taken immediately post Great War and during refit back to civilian configuration?
Perhaps the extra lifeboats (of which there are many) were from her trooping days.
