"here is a blow-up of the area where the wing cab would be - there appears to be something going on there, and as noted in the other scan it does cast an odd shadow - as if there was a cab there.

Awning spar stanchions I would think - albeit awning spars would be largely redundant on the north Atlantic!

If Maxtone-Graham's ascription is correct, not the Deutschland.

The 'mystery vessel' has an elegant sheer but Deutschland's profile shows a distinct absence of sheer away from her extremities.

Apart from that, scrollwork on the stern would seem to tally but a lot of the taffrail in the photo would have to have been plated up at some stage to agree.

Also Deutschland sported an accommodation ladder above the short maindeck promenade, of which I see no sign.
