It is indeed the MARINER, but at the time of the shot she was already operating as an ore carrier, with only her centre tanks being converted for ore carrying. As her catwalk was moved to the port side of the ship, in this shot it still looks that she is a tanker, but she was acutally converted in 1961. Before being laid up (in front of the RDM in this shot) she was named SEA RIDER and I suppose she did little trading as MARINER as she adopted that name in early 1974, and arrived for breaking up in Taiwan in June 1974.
