Possibles from bottom up - Dunedin Star/Port Nelson/Port Brisbane/Fed H boat/captain Cook/Rangitane/Rangatira.
The bottom centre looks Norwegian with that big bridge block.
Any other views?

Six or seven ships there loading some lamb. Just think.... 1 perhaps 2 million lambs slaughtered and gutted just to fill these ships all the way back home for Sunday roast. Terrible to do this for lambs... but just think for the people that have to grow all that mint!

I suspect the Rangi is in fact Ruahine, looks like only three lifeboats............'Tane and 'Toto had four a side

The Norwegian Peter83 refers to is possibly the British ALPHA ZAMBESI of Motor Lines Ltd, Greenock ex wartime carrier EMPIRE MACRAE.

Blue Star has wooden bridge front so cannot be DUNEDIN STAR, more likely SYDNEY STAR or BRISBANE STAR.

Canterbury Steam's BREEZE or GALE at the cross berth.

The funnel and bridgefrontof the third ship up looks more like the Auckland than the Brisbane, I could be wrong of course.
