Yes, there is every indication that she might be the ill-fated DUQUESA - this idea is maybe supported by seeing the three lifeboats and the fourth (smaller) one on the upper deck. The Princesa was very similar, but she seems to have had vents at the after end of # 3 and none appear here.

Yes Eddy, I agree she could be the Baronesa - although all four 1918 sister ships were built at four different yards, the two mentioned here were almost identical.

I always find it fascinating how guys back in those days wore suits and ties to work - look at the iconic picture of those working high up the Empire State Building ?

Agree, could be one of the vessels mentioned above. Probably Royal Victoria docks. Is that CONDESA behind? Looks like Furness Houlder on the gangway.
