These WW II standard ships were a common sight in Glasgow and most UK ports from the 1950s up until the late 1960s.
This was taken in Glasgow in 1967 when containerisation was beginning to make its mark on the traditional general cargo market.

I sailed as apprentice engineer 1968-1969 on the American Scout which was a sister ship.

The Scout was identified as a C2-S-AJ5 by the Maritime Administration and was built at North Carolina SB & DD (a wartime offshoot of Newport News SB) in Wilmington, NC.

#3 Upper Tween was a reefer hold. Also she was identified as a "Manchester Steamer" as the stack was removable and the radar mast was hinged.
