....Protector, it was eventually sold to Russia.
A really good inside image with some details from it.

It's the attire of the guys on the bench that gets me. I just can't imagine working a sub dressed like that, even if it were the "fashion of the day" so to speak.

It just goes to show that courage and bravery are independent of attire.

These are with out much doubt employees of the Lake Torpedo Boat company and probably doing a demo run for a few big shots of some kind.

Definitely looks like a publicity still, doesn't it?

It's remarkable, sometimes, when I think of what we are losing to digital cameras today. No one prints photos, and we all know that electronic files can be easily lost. Here on WLV-116, we have an exhibit of photos of mascot dogs of the Navy and Coast Guard from as far back as Olympia (C-6). None of that exhibit would have been possible were it not for having access to printed photos, or copies thereof. So much of history being made today risks being forever lost to memory alone while the pictures exist only digitally - I hope that more people with print to preserve their photos, not only for history's sake, but for their future generations' sakes, too.

Thanks for all the hard work, Ric, preserving these photos online for others to see, share, and maybe print, to preserve these visual records.
