Polish American Navigation
Founded in New York in 1919 to operate a cargo service
between New York and Danzig. In Dec.1920 a passenger ship was purchased
Star SS Co., New York and made 10 passenger voyages between New York
and Danzig. New U.S immigration laws drastically cut passenger numbers
the service ceased in Jan.1922 and the company closed.
