I posted a full size photo of this ship in gallery Nov 2008.
RobW suggested that the structure below the bridge was to
counteract vibration.
This photo shows the stucture more clearly.

Hi Manfred,
One of the three ships you have mentioned was the Russian
Magnitogorsk.. I often worked on her in Tilbury Docks during
late 1970's into 1980's.
She was on Leningrad - Tilbury -Cuba service...
I don't think stowaways would be found on her!
Regards
Stan

Stowaways were alsways a problem prior to departure from West Africa hence on some occasions dogs were used to locate them in addition to additional security guards that were posted whilst in port.
