South side K.G.V., ships berthed on "dolphins". Looks like Port boat, Federal and Union-Castle.
Cheers John.

The Port boat is "Port Curtis" (1953/5,635grt) - which was on a 5-year charter, 1955 to 1961 from the Albyn Line Ltd., Sunderland (Allan, Black & Co. managers). She reverted to her as-built name "Thistledowne" in 1961 on return to owners.

Looks like a few barges of CKD cars for Australasia alongside the "PORT CURTIS" . How times have changed .
