Baltic American Line
The former Russian American Line ships RUSSIA, KURSK, CZAR and CZARITZA were handed over to the East Asiatic Co, Copenhagen after World War I, this company having, in effect always been their owners. These ships were renamed in 1921 and placed in service between Libau, Danzig, Copenhagen and New York under the name Baltic American Line. Occasional calls were made at Glasgow, Falmouth, Portland (Dorset), Newcastle, Boston, Halifax and Quebec. In 1930 their remaining ships were sold to the Polish owned Gdynia America Line and the service ceased.
