The name of the ship moored at Douglas Wharf can be seen upon zooming in - S.S. Seistan. At the time this photo was taken she didn't have long to remain afloat, being sunk in Manila Bay during a Japanese air attack on 28th December 1941 (www.theshipslist.com/ships/lines/douglas.shtml & www.clydesite.co.uk/clydebuilt/viewship.asp?id=8242).
