Can anyone identify this? I understand it's a North Atlantic liner, and it comes from an article dated 1901.

wow, looks deutsch but I can't really tell-
open bridge and conn? and the helm is behind the bridge rather than on it, even while the telegraph to below in on the open bridge? odd layout! but maybe the norm for the 1890s? I'm sure no expert on those.

I will say, those guys look uber serioso, not really the jovial join-the-first-class for dinner types I think?
without a wider shot I doubt anyone could name that ship ....

There appears to be something on the port side railings, a lifering with a company logo / name?

If I find out any more , or get anymore pix, I'll let you know.

Liner Identified!

The liner is Hapag's Augusta Victoria, of 1889-91 era. The picture comes from an article (now in my possesion) from a magazine published at that time. In the picture you can read the name of the ship off the life ring, just visible in the photo at the end of the bridge wing. Here's a postcard of her.
