Probably Southampton. The funnel of Swedish Lloyd's "Patricia" can be seen in the background, she was used on the line's Southampton-Bilbao service in the 1970s

I won't say anything about it not being Tilbury, Spash , but, would like to say it is a smashing photograph of a good looking ship(Thumb)

Looks to me like the Fyffes berth at Empress Dock, Southampton. Turrialba's funnel colours would date the photo as post 1970 when Fyffes ships adopted the funnel colours of parent United Fruit/United Brands
