Snapshot of unknown ship at Lyttelton, c. late 1940's?
Looks like a Canadian 'Park', possibly Union SSCo 'Waikawa'-type? None of the USSCo photos I've got have 2 heavy-lift derricks, nor the funnel cap. Funnel looks to be in the process of repainting, and name on stern might end in a 'c'. 'Waihemo'

Beautiful ship which I travelled on in 1961. Had a number of 'scrapes' during a lond and eventful career
