These steamships were built of steel in Glasgow according to the latest designs.  The superiority of their construction and the containment of compartments in water-tight sections offer travelers the largest degree of safety against the dangers of the sea.  -- Electric lighting in compartments and steerage. --  The arrangements for steerage passengers -- with sleeping quarters located on the upper and second decks -- are generally considered excellent.  The length of the steamers is 415-435 feet, with a width of 40-49 feet.

The steamships of NORTH GERMAN LLOYD have transported some 2,250,000 passengers safely across the sea!

Good Food !         Reasonable Prices!

This line offers tourists and immigrants a superior choice for the crossing.  Cheap train travel from Baltimore to points west.  Protection against fraud in Bremen, at sea, and in Baltimore.  Immigrants can board trains directly from the steamship and as a result avoid extra costs for the transfer of baggage.  No need to change trains between Baltimore, Chicago, and St. Louis.

Translators accompany the immigrant on the trip to points west.
