    SS Bremen
    SS Bremen
    The SS Bremen (second of the name, first ship was scrapped in 1876) was built by F. Schichau of Danzig for the Norddeutscher-Lloyd line. At 525 feet long, 50 feet wide, and 10,500 GRT, the ship was very small by today's standards, with accommodations for 250 first class, 300 second class, and 1600 steerage passengers. Her maiden voyage was 5 Jun 1897 from Bremen to New York with a stopover at Southampton. On 30 Jun 1900, she was badly damaged in a dockside fire at the NDL pier in Hoboken, New Jersey. The fire was started by spontaneous combustion of a bale of cotton. After the fire she was rebuilt and lengthened to 575 ft, her tonnage increased to 11,540 GRT. She reentered service in Oct 1901. On 20 Apr 1912, while sailing from Bremen to New York City, Bremen passed through the debris field left by the sinking of the RMS Titanic. Passengers and crew reported seeing hundreds of bodies floating in the water as well as many deck chairs and pieces of wood. Since there was already a ship specially chartered by White Star line to retrieve any bodies, the Bremen did not stop. Bremen was laid up during World War I. After the war she was given to the British P&O line as part of the war reparations. Two years later she was sold to the Byron S.S. Co. and renamed Constantinople, and operated on the Piraeus-New York City route. By 1924, she was renamed King Alexander. She was scrapped in 1929.
