    This is the first time that I have seen a galaxy that looks like this with the bar and loop and 4 clusters. Grateful for advice.

    If you look at NED you will see it is listed in a catalogue of galactic clusters so this image may be the result of overlapping/merging galaxies, with bluish star formation areas. The little 'smoke ring' top left is certainly an interesting feature.
