The three funnelled liner looks like the Compagnie Sud-Atlantique's 'Burdigala', originally the NDL's 'Kaiser Friedrich' of 1897.
Built at Danzig by Schichau, she did not meet her speed requirements and, after various trials and tribulations and a short term charter to HAPAG, was laid up between 1900 and 1912 when the newly organized Cie Sud-Atlantique bought her, had new boilers fitted and placed her on a Bordeaux-South American service.
A trooper from March 1915, she was sunk in the Aegean by mines in November 1916.
12,481GT 600' x 64', twn screw, 4exp.
About 1,350 passengers in three classes.

Ship in the middle resembles Fabre Line SANT' ANNA (1910) or sister CANADA (1912) based at Marseilles. First acted as troopship 1915-1918, second as hospitalship 1914-1919.
