Crews Mess
Taken from the aft end of the Crews Mess looking forward. Some benches and tables remain, the ones on the stbd side are removed. All locker doors are missing. Before we had VCR's, remember watching 16mm movies, the screen was against the bulkhead in the far middle of the photo.

Crews Mess
This view is looking aft from the forward end of the Crews Mess. On the left you can see the foundations for the tables that were removed. In the far end of the picture is a ladder which I do not remember, can anyone identify this ladder?

Galley
Here is a good picture of the Galley. All the locker doors are removed, but it looks like the griddle, deep fat fryer and mixer are still there. I can almost smell the bread baking on the mid-watch!

Sonar Equipment Room
I believe this is in the Sonar Equipment Room. This was a relatively large room forward of the Crews Mess that housed the Sonar transmitter and receiver cabinets.

Middle Level Passageway
This is taken from the Sonar Equipment Room door out across the Middle Level Passageway. The Radar transceiver is seen. On the opposite side of the bulkhead (behind the radar) is the small arms locker. Note the yellow sign. The column on the right edge of the picture is the No. 2 periscope well.
