But by doing so it will show up in the other foto's of this vessel which is quite handy

"the IMO is for SS "Albert Ballin" in the backgroud" However the names of the vessels are not mentioned in the description, so the title remains a mystery.

The name of the city was Gotenhafen 1939-1945, the title is correct. the IMO is for SS "Albert Ballin" in the backgroud

GOTENHAFEN - IMO 5335993 ? What is the IMO for? Source of this photo? Maybe correct title is Gdynia, Poland?

War photo.
Certainly as an accommodation ship of the Kriegsmarine lying in the Gotenhafen, (2. Unterseebootslehrdivision und 8. U-Boots-Flottille) the funnel mark was down to the black top.
Regards friendship
