USS S-4 (SS-109)
View in the Torpedo Room, where eight men died a lingering death after the submarine was sunk in collision with USCGC Paulding off Provincetown, Massachusetts, on 17 December 1927.
This view looks aft at the door into the Battery Room, showing the door tightly dogged. The door itself was tight, but the glass deadlight leaked, as is shown by the rubber sheet held in place by a pinch bar and wooden wedges, placed there by the trapped men.
Photographed while S-4 was drydocked at the Boston Navy Yard, Charlestown, Massachusetts, 20 March 1928.
