RAMON DE LARRINAGA and FRANK JAMIESON

RAMON DE LARRINAGA preparing to depart Preston 7/5/62 assisted by local tug FRANK JAMIESON. RAMON DE LARRINAGA was one of the largest vessels to visit Preston (Prestonmax?) - size being limited by the entrance locks and presumably she also had to make sure she got the full height of the tide on the Ribble.

It is not de Larrinaga funnel colours - any ideas?
A few tons of hold rubbish on deck ready to be dumped at sea.

Many thanks for posting this shot, I`ve looked/waited for years to see verification of this occasion, which was much talked about when I was with Larrinaga`s. As Stan says it`s not the company funnel colours, but I don`t know who`s either.
Cheers,
David

Good photo Jim,

The white stuff piled on deck could be "China Clay", I believe that there was plenty of the stuff shipped to Preston.

Cheers Frank

Larrinaga funnel colours yellow with two red, not blue bands, of a larger width, there maybe a shield or device on the funnel but can`t make it out, certainly not part of Larrinaga livery.
Cheers,
David
