Joan Engel (joan.engel@gmail.com) asked about the ship Eisenach
which left Bremen on 14 May 1913 and arrived in Baltimore 9 Jun 1913.

The Eisenach was built in 1908 and belonged to North German Lloyd.
She sailed on the South American run to Brazil and Argentina.
The ship was interned in Pernambuco on the outbreak of WW1 and
became owned in Brazil. Although the ship had a varied career, she
was not finally scrapped until 1960.
The voyage to Baltimore in 1913 was her only sailing to North America.

There is a picture of the Eisenach in "Ships of our Ancestors" by
Michael Anuta. The picture is credited to the Peabody Museum at Salem, MA.
Anuta is not always accurate, particularly when there were several ships
with the same name - NDL had two later Eisenachs. I checked the picture
and it looks correct for a ship built in 1908.
