Default Buenos Aires IDNo 1139007

Have been lucky last week, did buy and old photo, taken in the 1930ies in the part of the port of Hamburg, where our steamtug TIGER is now at home.
The big building called "Augustinum" used to be the UNION Kühlhaus (cold storage) In 1991 it was dismantled and rebuilt, to be used as Home for Elder (wealthy) people.

On this photo can be seen the SS BUENOS AIRES, owner at this time Norddeutscher Lloyd, Bremen
