Taken sometime between beginning May and end of June 1964. Which ship I am not sure.
On the back of the photograph I have written Avonmouth so my main thought is the Federal Steam's Hertford on Home Trade. The only other vessel would be the PSNC Kenuta on Home Trade.

If the Hertford, whilst along

Looks like Brocklebank's Mahanada in the left background, identifiable by the spare propeller on the old WW2 gun mounting.
Was Calum Murray a PO(N) on the Botany Bay later on?

Ian,they seem to be in line with the derricks. If they are behind the ship that would put them on the quay and an obstruction to the shore cranes?
Cheers, John
