A small point: The men who worked in OISC shed at that time were classed as storemen, not dockers. Alan Bullen (manager) and Jackie Kelday (stevedore) brought containerisation to the North Isles.

Thanks Alistair - good shot of my in-laws and wife (to be). Given my wife's appearance I would suggest date more likely very early 70s
