There is the wake from another vessel. Is this a tug preparing for the departure of the Himalaya or another departing ship. There would not appear to be enough activity on the either the ship or the quayside for the departure to be imminent.

This is the Tilbury landing stage, not a "cruise terminal". In 1950, ships were a means of transport.
