Picture of Canon Beck Road 1951 makes one realise how close it was to the river and with todays picture you would not think it was the same place

I thought that the ship in the 1950's photo was in Albion Dock, the view being southwards toward the dock wall. The view to the river (in the other direction) would have been blocked by wharfs.
