BARLE-Launched 14th March 1914-Delivered 26th May 1914.
ADMIRAL CRADOCK-Launched 28th March 1914-Delivered 26th May 1914.
LORD MINTO-Launched 1st March 1914-Delivered 6th May 1914.
HOLYROOD-Launched 9th April 1914-Delivered 17th June 1914.

So time span is spot on. Picture taken between 9th April 1914 and the 26th May 1914. BARLE looks nearly ready to go so I would go for the beginning of May 1914.

That's a great find, Kevin, especially for that period .... mind you my mother also dates from May 1914 as is still in existence, unlike the shipyard or any of these vessels. The riveters must have done a good job .... :)
Cheers, George
