Pukow c1918

Discharging a heavy lift from a Blue Funnel ship, possibly the Knight Companion, about 1918. Pukow was an important railway terminus. Could this be a railway engine boiler ?

Looks like a "Lancashire" boiler which worked at about 50lb/in^2 often found in cotton mills and the like

According to writing on boiler it was manufactured by Penmans of Glasgow, a well-known maker of Lancashire boilers. Therefore it was probably destined for static use as suggested by Supergoods. Possibly a laundly?
