SS Karlsruhe Ephemera Collection
All Digitized Ephemera for the SS Karlsruhe available at the GG Archives. Common items of ephemera in our maritime collection include passenger lists, brochures, event and entertainment programs, and other memorabilia produced for a voyage or ship.
Vintage Dinner Bill of Fare from Sunday, 29 July 1928 on board the SS Karlsruhe of the North German Lloyd featured Fried English Sole, Potato Salad with Mayonnaise, Glazed Saddle of Veal, and Rice Pudding, Strawberry Sauce for dessert. Printed in German and English, the Bill of Fare included a Music Program and an announcement of a Moving Picture show later that evening.
Ephemera contained in the GG Archives collection represent the souvenirs provided to the passengers of each voyage. Many of these souvenir ephemeral items have disappeared over the years.
Our selection varies considerably by ship, and likely contains only a sampling of what was originally produced and printed by the steamship lines.
