German Submarine U-53
At Newport, Rhode Island, on 7 October 1916. She subsequently attacked Allied shipping off the U.S. East Coast.
USS Birmingham (Scout Cruiser # 2) is in the right distance.
Note tall radio masts and German Navy flags on the submarine, and the interesting small boat tied up alongside.
