Express-Steamer Fürst Bismarck 1899
The SS Furst Bismarck ocean liner was built in 1890 and took thousands of German immigrants from Hamburg to their new lives in the United States. The five-deck vessel usually made the trip in five or six days and was a familiar sight offloading its passengers at Ellis Island, New York. Most passengers traveled steerage, of course, but a lucky few were in first or second class and they passed the journey in elaborate accommodations and were treated like royalty. This 1899 menu cover was for a musical evening where an orchestra played Mendelsohn, Strauss and Wagner as guests dined.
