USS S-4 (SS-109)
Being towed to the Boston Navy Yard, Charlestown, Massachusetts, after being raised off Provincetown, Massachusetts, where she had been sunk in collision with USCGC Paulding on 17 December 1927. Original caption gives this photo's date as 19 March 1928, but it may have been taken the day before.
Note the salvage pontoons supporting S-4, four located forward and two aft.
The ship immediately astern of S-4 is probably USS Falcon (AM-28).
