Nice shot - The boy on the roller skates must have had some difficulty roller skating on the that surface.

The date was early sixties, the Port - Blyth in Northumberland, England, - the ship name I don't know I'm afraid - it was on its way to Hughes Bolckow shipbreaking yard.

Looks like one of the old depot ships ex Cunard/P&O.

Scouse.

I/m going to stick my neck out and try for Cunard's ALAUNIA which arrived at Blyth on 10th September 1957.

So sad to see the the Alaunia going on her last journey. I served on her for about six months during 1955/56 when she was a depot ship in Devonport Dockyard.
