I think the ship in the background is Shipping & Coal's GREENLAND, launched 19th June 1962 and completed September 1962

A view from downstream, with BORDE on the pontoon and the Wearmouth road and rail bridges beyond.
BORDE was a product of Austin's yard, in 1953.
I remember many walks down that steep road, leading to Corporation Quay and a view of the Thompson yard.
