Athens of the West

Good Day to you Gentle Folk! you've enter a place dedicated to all sorts of vintage, with a tinny mix of music I enjoy.

The submarine USS S-5 stern bobbing almost vertically after almost sinking during diving tests September 1, 1920, after being spotted by the steamship Alanthus, the Alanthuss captain turned his vessel around to investigate. Approaching the submarine’s stern rising above the ocean, the captain hailed S-5 in maritime fashion. That conversation became legend:

"What ship?""S-5.""What nationality?""American.""Where bound?""Hell by compass."
All the crew were eventually successfully rescued
