Photo of ship carrying a cargo of wood

Cargo vessel Margrete loaded with wood. The year is a guess. This photo is part of a series of four all to do with the Royal Yacht Britannia, hence the flags.

Results of a trawl on the web:
I think this is the 1917 Kjobenhavns (Copenhagen) built Danish Cargo Ship Margrete (5162281). She measured a length of 76.2 metres and 1207 tons and was owned by A/S D/S Vesterhavet (J.Lauritzen), Esbjerg. She was scrapped in 1969.

Nice photo, but the funnel mark does not fit J. Lauritzen, and to my memory they did not operate such a vessel in 1960. So it has to be another MARGRETHE - or may be the MARGRETHE of 1917, but under another ownership.
