Hamburg-American Line's American home port was Hoboken during this period. This item was likely printed and imprinted on board a passenger ship, name unknown. While the line had routes other than just the trans-Atlantic passages between Europe and Hoboken and it may have been used on one of those other routes, it is considered as typical of the ones used on their ocean liners that did operate from Hoboken.
