She looks very similar to the bunch of UASC ships built in Glasgow around that time.

I joined this ship at La Seyne as Second Steward on 1st Sept 1962 and left her in Venice 8th Jan 1964. As I recall the Captain for most of that time was Capt Lowes from I believe Richmond in Yorkshire, a really nice guy.
