Scope & Content Ship Stack Insignia. American Offshore Passenger and Cargo Lines and Foreign Liner Services to American Ports. Compiled and Published by Marine Engineering / Log, copyright 1971. Distributed by Texaco, Inc., International Marine Sales Department, N.Y. Fold-out poster plate 23" high x ca. 17-1/2" wide (stub end at lower left edge where removed from publication.)

Chart printed with the logos and colors seen on funnels or smokestacks for 195 lines.

From the Becker family of Hoboken, this is one of three charts they had (see 2009.013.0015 & .0017 for one earlier and one later chart.) Apparently personal interest or a hobby to identify ships that were seen in Hoboken, on the Hudson River or New York Harbor.
