Album cover: Red grained paper boards, 5-3/8" high x 7-1/4" wide; stab binding with cord tie; cover titled in silver gilt: Souvenir of Hoboken.

Contents: title leaf plus 28 leaves of collotype photogravures with titling; unpaginated; all leaves 5" x 7-1/8" wide except last leaf (panoramic fold-out view), 13-1/2" wide. PDF on file.

Date of publication or copyright is not stated. Dating is based on content in images and analysis of views (see notes). Some photographs were apparently taken much earlier than the probable date of issue, circa mid to late 1890s. Witteman was a postcard publisher as well as creator of view albums such as this one. Albertype Co. is Witteman printing arm.

The Lischke retail shop near the Hamburg (stated "Hamburger" on title leaf) American Line piers apparently served the passenger traffic of this steamship line as well as the North German Lloyd Line adjacent to the Hamburg American piers. Passengers of the nearby railroad and ferry could also have been customers.
