My grandfather was manifested in this ship from Naples to New York in 1905,. and Im curious of there are any pictures of her.

Built in Stettin at A.G. Wilkens shipyard in the late 1880's or 90's, scrapped sometime in the 1920's. She was 465 ft at waterline, beam 57' carried 60 in First class, no second, and 2,000 in 3rd! I find that hard to believ, but I guess its possible, those are about the same specs as a lot of cruisers in those days, so I guess with a big enough superstructure its possible.
Twin reciprocating engines, 13knots.
