SS Prince August Wilhelm

A card from the Postcard book of "Steamboats" showing a poster advertising the passenger steamer "Prince August Wilhelm" of the Hamburg-America Line (4733 GRT, 856 passengers, 116 crew). 

The ship’s maiden trip was to Mexico in 1903. Interned in Colombia in 1914, she was destroyed in a fire, mainly due to the effects of war in Colombia in 1918. 

The artist has tried to give the painting a pleasing tropical flavour with sugar cane plants.

Thank you Klaus for this nice card.
