The general cargo ship S.A. Morgenster is seen in this photograph while underway in the New Waterway in Holland sometime during the 1970s. Can anyone confirm this location and possibly a date?

This ship was built in Japan in 1969 as (a) S.A. Morgenster. She sailed under this name until 1985 when she was sold and renamed (b) Morgenster. This was short lived though since she was sold for scrapping early in 1988. The comparitively young ship arrived at Kaohsiung, Taiwan on February 11, 1988 and work on dismantling her began on the 26th of that month.
