Worthing at the extreme right - recognisable from her varnished wooden bridge - and I can see Foremost 22 at the tug stage. Not too sure about the ships with twin funnels, though one may be the Rouen before she was converted to oil burning.

I can't see the Sheerlegs. When were they erected?

I haven't got the original postcard or the hi-res scan, but have looked at the screen with a magnifying glass! They are there, Trevor! Follow the Railway Quay up to the bridge and there's a vessel berthed at the marine shops, which the glass reveals to be a bucket dredger - most likely Foremost Prince. Now look up and slightly right and you can see a diagonal black line, which is the rear sloping leg. If you then follow this up to the top, you'll see the two front legs.
