    BI's SS Nevasa in a mystery location

    Easy enough to identify this as the troopship cum educational cruiseship, but where is she tied up?

    Some of the features remind me of Greenock but unfortunately I cannot remember for certain what the area between Princes Pier and Custom House Quay was like before the container terminal was created, I only ever made one downriver trip from I thought most of the area was the dock used for winter lay up by CSP and I had not been aware of a river berth.

    Sure the locals will put me right on this subject.

    Sorry Seapigeon I left my post over an hour ago to answer the phone for what proved a long call, on my return I pressed "post" and found your reply.

    At least we are in agreement.

    Interesting; I did think the hills behind looked like the Rosneath Peninsula, but I couldn't think where the warehouses were(it looks like a lairage TBH). The only distinguishing feature is what looks like a hydraulic pump house tower, similar to the one that used to serve the Queens Dock in Glasgow, but google has not revealed where that was in Greenock; all I could find was the pump house for the James Watt Dock/Garvel drydock, but that appears to be in a different style. Fancifully, I thought it looked too tropical and sunny so it couldn't possibly be the Clyde! BI's SS Nevasa in a mystery location

    The tower in two pictures strikes a note in my memory that I use to see something similar from The Esplanade whilst looking towards Princes Pier.

    In the stern view looking upriver the land intruding in the distance on the left hand side looks rather like the view of Dumbarton from Greenock I feel.

    What I thought was a pump house tower would appear to be part of Princes pier station; take a look at this youtube clip of Greenock in 1959.
