Featured Ships: Lahn, Eider, Trave, Aller, Ems, Fulda, Saale, Werra, and the Elbe.
Beautifully engraved "Prepaid Passage Receipt" from the North German Lloyd.

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.
