The Nyland yard, whaling mothership Svend Foyn in the foreground. This is all gone, bland boxes of concrete and glass now fill up everything within the frame of this photo.

The whaling mothership Svend Foyn, would that be the company Svend Foyn Bruun, Tønsberg...My first Norwegian ship the M/T Norsk Viking (1969) was sold to Svend Foyn Bruun and renamed M/T Pet, I stayed on board with them for a few months......

St. Heliers Shipowners London, is what I get from these links, but the crew seems to have been Norwegian:
