Vintage Brochure: The Steamship “Deutschland” - Hamburg-American Line (1924)
Extraordinary 1924 brochure that introduces the New Twin-Screw Steamship S.S. Deutschland of the Hamburg-American Line.
The steamer “Deutschland” is like her sister ship “Albert Ballin,” a twin-screw turbine steamer of 21,000 tons gross register. Her length over all is 627 feet, her width 73 feet, and from the boat deck to keel 80 feet deep. Two sets of turbine engines give her a speed of 15 1/2 knots. The new system of anti-rolling tanks with which the “Deutschland” and “Albert Ballin” are the first to be equipped, insures the greatest degree of steadiness in all weather conditions. In the spacious and very elegant staterooms of the first-class about two hundred passengers are accommodated. The second-class is arranged for four hundred passengers and nine hundred and forty passengers are carried in third-class in comfortable rooms.
Among the special features of the “Deutschland” are gymnasium, grill room, passenger elevator, dark room for amateur photographers, electric light baths, ocean picture equipment. The cuisine and service is of the high standard which for seventy-five years has made the Hamburg-American Line famous in ocean travel.
