S.S. Pennsylvania, Patricia, Graf Waldersee and Pretoria Photos - 1905
Photographs of S.S. Pennsylvania, Patricia, Graf Waldersee and Pretoria of the Hamburg-American Line - 1905 including five interior views of First and Second Cabin Accommodations and Public Rooms.
From New York to Dover (London or Paris) and Hamburg, and from Hamburg via Dover (London), Boulogne (Paris) to New York.
A very large proportion of transatlantic travel has for its destination, points in England, France and Germany. This service affords an attractive and convenient route not only to points in England, but to Paris and points in France. The steamers assigned to this service are the " Pennsylvania," " Pretoria," " Patricia," and " Graf Waldersee," which are among the largest and best known vessels in the world.
Their roomy and home-like staterooms, broad stretches of deck and absolute steadiness under all conditions of weather, render them favorites with hosts of people who appreciate a maximum of comfort in travel. The table is excellent, and the service first-class in every respect.
The twin-screw system adds materially to the safety of these vessels, as in case of accident to one engine, the steamer can proceed with the other to her destination. The problems of marine navigation have been so efficiently solved in these vessels that all elements of danger are practically eliminated; but that does not deter the Company from providing safeguards for every possible contingency.
Some idea of the size of these vessels may be gained from the fact that their tonnage averages over 13,000, and that in the holds of each steamer there is room for so great a cargo that it would take 616 large American freight cars to transport it, or, in other words, a train of cars reaching from Trinity Church to Central Park in New York.
