Her near sister Glenpark shows a few detail differences, so I think that you can safely assume that it is Broompark

She would have done her first Orient Mid East charter in Sept 1959,when Orient Mid East was painted on her side and Seaway booms were fitted in Montreal before going up the newly opened St Lawrence Seaway, Great lakes. First Port Chicago and Calumet, and the other Great Lake Ports before going out Far East and back to the Continent, paid off Hamburg 25th March 1960. Flown back to Glasgow.
