Various: pre-war - 1914 Baltimore sailing poster

Product Description

North German Lloyd:  An 11” by 14” cardboard poster from the spring of 1914 announcing new North German Lloyd service from Baltimore to Bremen. 

Former belles of the fleet KOENIGIN LUISE, BARBAROSSA, and FRIEDRICH DER GROSSE were added to the existing Baltimore fleet of MAIN and CASSEL.  The poster has a red string for hanging.  In the upper left corner is a sketch of a BARBAROSSA Class ship. 

Pre-World War 1, Baltimore was an important immigrant port for North German Lloyd.  While the dates shown here match up for both 1908 and 1914, the inclusion of “Hansa Haus”, built in 1912, makes this poster from the later.  In the early 1900s Baltimore service grew so quickly that local agent A. Schumacher & Co. built a new headquarters in the 16th Century German Renaissance style and named it Hansa Haus.  Alas, North German Lloyd used it for only a few years before the war and afterwards they went elsewhere.  Fortunately for us ship buffs, the building still stands and is nicely restored. 

Good condition with a few stains and rips.
