On 26 February 1930 a charter for the Bermuda line (Bermuda & West Indies Steamship Company Ltd. of New York, managers Furness & Withy) is announced, for two summers due to the sinking of their own ship the Fort Victoria. The Veendam departs for it first voyage on 2 July 1930 and spends the whole summer on round-trips between New York and Bermuda. The funnels carry the colors of the Furness Bermuda Line.

This likely places this aquatint as dating between 1930-1932.
