Hi Bob S
It's another Bob S(Bob Shea) here. Any idea what year this photo was taken? Would be interested to know as my father Raymond Shea boarded the Cymric in New Zealand for London in the 60's. He was working for Shaw Saville and Albion and transferred to the London offices in the mid to late 60's.
Cheers

Bob
