    "REISE-PASS
    gültig bis zum 14ten Juni 1920
    für den Geschäfts-
    führer* Herrn
    Richard
    Emsig**
    aus Cöln
    ***"

    ...i.e.:

    "PASSPORT
    valid through 14th June 1920
    for the
    Geschäfts-
    führer Mr.
    Richard
    Emsig
    from Cologne
    "



    *) Depending on the exact context (= nature of occupation) Geschäftsführer can be translated as "manager", "managing director", "executive secretary", "CEO" etc. etc.

    **) I am fairly, but not 100 % sure about the name.

    ***) Cöln is an archaic spelling of Köln.
