Thanks very much Holger Jaschob in confirming this was not taken at Bremerhaven. Also to Patrick Hill for likely location being Rotterdam, which would fit with a couple of my visits to that port. Derek

Could it be Prins Willem-Alexanderhaven at Rotterdam, back in the 80's it was a Sea-Land terminal - the quayside and lighting looks the same -

Definitely this can't be Bremerhaven. We never had this kind of container cranes in the harbour. Looks like a Sealand logo on the crane housing?
