|Title||Atomic submarine U.S.S. Nautilus, Seattle, 1957 |
|Caption||Sharing a name with the submarine in Jules Verne's novel, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, the U.S.S. Nautilus was the world's first nuclear powered submarine. Commissioned in 1954 by the U.S. Navy, it served until 1980. Here, sailors line the deck as the sub cruises through the water. A tour of West Coast cities in 1957 included a three-day stop in Seattle. Although the public was not allowed onboard, they watched from shore for a glimpse of the latest in underwater warfare. |
