USN 1149029 Salvage of USS Squalus (SS-192), 1939

Photo #: USN 1149029  Salvage of USS Squalus (SS-192), 1939
Title: Salvage of USS Squalus (SS-192), 1939
Description: Squalus' bow comes to the surface, during an attempt to lift her from the sea bottom off the New Hampshire coast, in the Summer of 1939. This appears to be the 13 July 1939 lift, in which Squalus' bow rose uncontrollably to the surface and then sank. If that is the case, the four salvage pontoons visible here are probably the two pontoons of the lifting lines attached to the submarine's bow, and the upper two pontoons of the stern lifting lines.
