German ships

German ships, 135th Str, NY. Probably before 1931. Should be identifiable. (Havent heard from Manfred Bootsman in a while, but there might be others here with similar capabilities).

Picture from Bain collection, Library of Congress, hope it hasn't been posted before.

Hi CVB. I actually have some photos of most of the ships you've named, in Kludas/Bischoff's work on the Hapag ships. But regrettably not pictured in any way the same angle, so I'll take your word for it. With your record here, that seems a safe thing to do. Here's the same ships in another angle:
