The USS Leviathan, March 6, 1919.
Quote
German ocean liner Vaterland at New York probably after she was seized by the United States Shipping Board after the United States entered World War I. Shown as USS Leviathan, March 6, 1919. Turned over to the U.S. Navy, she became USS Leviathan, July 1917 and served as a troop ship throughout the war until October 1919. She then served again as a liner in the U.S. as SS Leviathan until 1934 and was sold for scrapping in June 1939.

Pipes to $25? That is unreal. 1936 had the most expensive Kaywoodie's @ $10 for a straight grain. I suppose there may be a reason that I have never heard of this company?

Being as this is Bellgab, I can't really stop myself...

It sure looks like WWI was just a giant false flag operation. Everything in that port looks to be completely intact and in good operating condition. No way that they could get it ready for this photo op in just half a year. Personally, I think that Soros was behind it.

During World War I Cologne was the target of several minor air raids but suffered no significant damage.
(It sure got the hell bombed out of it during WWII, though.)

So I can't call WWI a false flag operation? I really didn't realize it fared that well in WWI. My grandmother was around that area in WWII. Didn't sound at all pretty.*

*Of course, she might just be a paid state actor.  ;)

Oh wow.  I'm glad your grandmother made it out of there OK.  Have you ever seen that movie Slaughterhouse Five?  It dramatized the bombing of Dresden during WWII in kind of a kooky, yet highly effective way.

Here is an arrangement of goods that cannot fail in its appeal to the bride and those friends and relatives seeking gifts. Are you giving this class of merchandise the space it deserves at the present time? This layout is not a difficult one to duplicate, even though worked out on a smaller scale. Try it!

Yes indeed.  I tried to find additional info on the guy but I didn't succeed.  There were three Abraham Schwartzs' listed at Find A Grave, who had died in 1919, but they all had unknown birthdates/years.
