Can anyone identify this ship ?

Taken from now long gone Princes Landing Stage Liverpool, in the days
when there was no `over the top` Health and Safety regs to deny you the simple pleasures of strolling along the stage.

Can any one hazard a guess as to What Ship this was ? I`m thinking maybe one of `Ellermans`.

I'm pretty sure it is Lamport & Holt's "Vandyke"

Just a bit of information.
There is a very large reproduction of this photograph on the wall at the entrance to the toilets in the Clayton Square shopping mall in Liverpool city centre.
Ship's name still pretty hard to decipher though if you did not know it was the 'Vandyke'.
