Waterfront and covered shipways, circa summer-fall 1927. USS V-4 (SM-1) and USS V-5 (SC-1) are under construction in inside shipways building. V-4 (later renamed Argonaut) is on the nearer way and appears to be nearly ready for her launching, which took place on 10 November 1927. V-5 (later renamed Narwhal) is in a much earlier stage of construction, having been laid down on 10 May 1927.
USS S-13 (SS-118) and another "S"-type submarine are alongside the waterfront, at left.
