Photo Number 250
I happened along this photo this past weekend in a shop that I will call Dorset 3 as it is the third Antique Shop we have visited in Dorset, Minnesota. The Graf Waldersee was built by Blohm and Voss of Hamburg in 1898 for the Hamburg Amerika Line. In later years it was taken over from Germany in WWI as a troop transport service.
This must be part of the crew, perhaps there is someone that can translate the German?? written at the bottom of the photo. This must be part of the crew, and the photo was probably taken in 1906. If they are not crew perhaps they are a group of immigrants??
Thanks for stopping by do come again:) Click on the photo to see it larger!
Update from Ena! Thanks!!
the german at the bottom is hard to read.. I think, it means in german: "Zum Andenk. Neujar in New York." translation: in memory of new year's day in new york.
