Well spotted.
Strange rendition of her builder, should be Humber St. Andrews, on the slipways at west end of the old SA Dock.

Hi George
Even I could not fail to miss it as it was on the live feed as pictures are posted on the site
Looked at it and thought it was a funny one so clicked on her and heh presto - actually I think Presto was one of Pelton SS Co. Ltd's and nothing to dow ith Safeway or Morrisons :D
Looks a lot bigger than when I saw her as Anglianman and Clevelandman
