Seven real photo postcards, documenting a transatlantic voyage, with the ship sometimes referred to as Princess Irene in the captions for the English-speaking passengers. The year is 1912, which we get from all 7 captions. We see: a group of well-dressed male passengers standing by a ship life raft (upper left), a man & woman reclining in solitude between lifeboats with bilingual "No admittance" sign (2 similar but different--upper right & lower right), deck with several passengers & funnels & rigging (middle middle), the wake of the ship (lower left), a well-dressed couple near two large funnels (middle left), and a view from the forecastle including 2 smokestacks (middle right).

During World War I the Prinzess Irene became the USS Pocahontas, a US Navy transport ship. After that war she sailed again under a German flag for NDL.

All 7 real photos sold but still available for scholarly study & research as enlarged (about 771% of original print area) & enhanced 200-dpi scans in .jpg or .tif format. $2.00 each, or all 7 for $10.00 s(o)s(m)
