This is Seward in late 40’s early 50’s. The name on the stern of the ship is strange, can not make it out as anything on the Alaska Steam Ship Co. roster but they are using the ASSCo gangway in the background.
The containers look like the very first ones in service and were 8’X20’ The ARR had some of these. The flat car loads look like a little D-2 or 4 Cat and behind it a D-6 or similar with a blade. Just coming around the curve at the head of the dock is a mogul.
