It's the Manchester Ship Canal and if I am not mistaken, that's a swing bridge aquaduct.

What puzzles me most about that picture is that the boat on the left seems to be going full steam ahead into the stationery ship.

2 tugs - head and stern tug. If you look closely you can see the lines attached from the ship to the tug. Nowadays they are not required so much due to bow thrusters. But in those days a ship like that wasn't very manoeuvrable in a canal.
