USS S-4 (SS-109)
In dry dock at the Boston Navy Yard, Charlestown, Massachusetts, circa 19-20 March 1928, after salvage.
The original caption reads: "In memory of the historic crew. A huge cross of roses, the gift of workers at the Boston Navy Yard, is tied to the periscope of the ill-fated submarine S-4, after the eight bodies were removed from the undersea craft which is now in drydock at the Boston Navy Yard."
Note the depth marking stick placed just forward of the submarine's fairwater during salvage operations.
