Any information on the operation of Hamburg-American and Norddeutscher Lloyd steamers in China would be greatly appreciated.

No, unfortunately the postcards I own by Norddeutscher-Lloyd did not have the ship's name on it, but it bears a German seapost cancel from Shanghai, Qingdao etc., which were German treaty ports in China in the late 1890s to the 1920s.
For the Hamburg-American Line however, the Lyeemoon, Tsintau and the See Kiang. Rather Chinese sounding names which makes it odd for a ship owned by Hamburg-American Line. Anyway, thanks very much for your help in searching the stats for me (can't seem to find them)!
