      The small tanker was the Campanilla. The ship at anchor, loading/discharging to barges, has been identified by Javier Careaga as Alheli, Liberty type ship that carried that name since 1961 to 1968. She was built in 1943 as Henry Dodge, being renamed since 1946 to 1961 as Giovanni Amendola. She sunk on 24/April/1968 in the Atlantic Ocean during a trip with fluorspar from Almería to Wilmington.
      The photo was shot between 1961 and 1963, because some of the ships in it were scrapped in 1963.
