Notes from Peter:

There are two Alfred Holt Co. ships on the berths. The ship with the blue and black funnel belongs to The Blue Funnel Line, and generally traded from the west coast of the UK and NW Europe to the Far East. The ship with the red and black funnel belongs to the Glen Line which was an amalgamation of the Scottish company Glen Line and the Welsh company Shire Line. The Glen Line normally traded between the east coast of the UK and NW Europe to the Far East.
