Hi Chris,
very intersting port scene, expecially with that really old vessel in the background. From the stern it must as well a pre second WW vessel.

If that building in the background is the 'Birkenhead Tavern', people might be interested to know that it is still standing today!!

Another classic image.

Thanks, Mark
