|NOTES: Figures on this page are as given on the cards. Gross Tons is the registered tonnage calculated by archaic formula that figures internal volume. Capacity in Tons and Freight Volume are as given on cards; figures were probably officially registered. Traveling information regarding ports served may only have been accurate at issuance of the cards. Numerous card series were issued and these cards are from a wide variety so all were not issued simultaneously. Images enlarged and fixed for visibility on the internet. TERMS in classification of ships translated from cards; term "Liner" used interchangeably with "Express Steamship." Term "Motor" in classification implies use of diesel engines for propulsion. Other ships propelled by steam, either with coal or oil fired boilers.|
