    Claas, You hope I enjoyed the pictures? I sure did after I picked myself up off of the floor and regained my composure. The photos are stunning and the subjects absolutely marvelous! I must admit, however, that I've already begun seeing the 1916 date and am wanting to change it to 1916-2016. I've already contacted G. Krug & Son Artist Wrought Iron Work about providing paper weights and they are receptive to the idea. There are so many 1916-2016 commemorative replicas we could offer centennial attendees and the anniversary supporters where ever that may berth.

    Class: I'm truly envious of your collection. Fantastic. I have an extra Baltimore-made watch fob--the one that you don't have--which I will trade you if you have a duplicate of something in your clooection. Let me know. Dwight

    Claas's collection humbles me, but I did find a few odds-and-ends in the garage. Here they are.

    This is truly impressive in that it represents the media coverage of the U-Deutschland's first visit to the US. I wish I could see this book "in the flesh," but sadly it was a victim of WWII. It was donated to the Royal Library in Berlin by the American chapters of the Deutschebund and Reichsbund. I ran across an interesting statistic yesterday, which was that in 1895, Chicago was "the third largest German city in the world." Obviously the Bund organizations were rather large then.

    When König died in 1933 there was a memorial service for him in Baltimore. This is the program.

    Speaking of COOLections Dwight, I can't tell you, Claas, Luke and others, whose posts have contributed materially to warrelics.eu, how very much I appreciate being aboard via this U-DEUTSCHLAND thread.

    Much like this site, in my adulthood I stumbled upon the story of this fantastic submarine freighter, not realizing that the July 1916 Baltimore Volksfest held in honor of the crew took place less than 500 yards from, and in sight of, my childhood bedroom window.

    I realize after reading my last post to this thread how much it sounds like my having a trinket-mentality. However, I wish to explain that I too am only interested in developing tangible reminders of a memorable centennial of the U-DEUTSCHLAND, much like the 100 year old reminders you all have so selflessly shared with us other Cyber sailors.

    Danke,
    STBaltimore

    Hi again Dwight

    Alas, all I can add to this splendid thread is my second postcard for the mighty U-Kreuzer Deutschland. I nearly burst into song when I saw it - New York, New York!

    Damned, why did I not found this card
    I have to improve my search!!!

    Dwight: Nice stuff you have.

    I have the postcard "view of bottom", too. And a "not cut away"-version.



    Regards
    Claas

    P.S.: Dwight, I will see what I have in my collection to deal. But that will not be much.
