the InterIsland Ferry Terminal in Wellington, circa 1965

A DSC locomotive can be seen either pulling or pushing wagons into/from the rail deck. Four Union Steam Ship Company ships can be seen berthed nearby on the Aotea Quay wharf, the nearest of which is the original mv Golden Bay (1954--1982).  

This was over a decade before the container terminal was built.  For lots more, see the book New Zealand Maritime Images: the golden years. (via Mike Pryce)
