About the SS. Noordam of the Holland-American Line
This vessel, built by Messrs Harland & Wolff, Belfast, for the Netherlands-American Steam Navigation Co., has been taken for her trials. This is the fourth vessel built by Messrs Harland & Wolff for the same owners and is intended to trade in the Company's service between Rotterdam and New York.
The machinery has also been constructed in Messrs Harland & Wolff works and consists of two sets of triple-expansion engines embodying the latest improvements. The accommodation has been provided for many first- and second-class passengers. The ship also has the capacity for carrying very large cargo to deal with ample appliances of the most approved character on board.
Electric light is installed throughout, and refrigerating apparatus and chamber» fitted up for the conveyance of fruit, vegetables, etc., for the passengers. Special attention has been given to the decorative work, which, in its general features, closely resembles the sister-ship, the Ryndam, some details of quite a unique character being introduced in these two ships.
