Terriers on Deck

Feeding the terriers on the deck of the "Kasierin Auguste Victoria" in June  of 1906.

This 677-foot ship was built in 1905 by Vulcan AG shipyard in Stettin (now Szczecin) Poland) for the Hamburg America Line, and was put on a regularly route from Hamburg to New York until the outbreak of world War I. At the end of that war, she was seized by the U.S. Navy. She was transferred from the U.S. Navy to the British in 1919, who sold it to Cunard Lines, who sold it to Canadian Pacific, who re-christened the ship RMS Empress of Scotland before finally scrapping the ship in England in 1930.
