Raising of a submarine called the Foolkiller from the icy Chicago River in the Loop community area of Chicago, Illinois, circa December 1915. A barge with a crane is on the left side of the image, and a tugboat is behind the submarine in the center of the image. A snow-covered quay with people on it is on the right. A man is walking on a gangplank between the barge and the tugboat, and a small rowboat is next to the submarine. Text reads Foolkiller submarine being raised from river at Wells Street Bridge.
