The S-10 (SS-115) was decommissioned on the day this photo was taken at Philadelphia Navy Yard, Philadelphia, PA. and laid up in the Reserve Fleet.
Pictured also are any of the following boats that were at the PNY during this time.
The O boats:O-1 (SS-62), O-2 (SS-63), O-3 (SS-64), O-6 (SS-67), O-7 (SS-68), O-8 (SS-69), O-9 (SS-70), O-10 (SS-71).

|554k||OLD WARRIOR JOIN THE SCRAP;
"These decommissioned U.S. submarines, built between 1917 and 1921, have been towed from the Philadelphia Navy Yard up the Deleware River to be junked. They will add some 4,430 tons to the nation's depleted scrap pile."
It is possible that these subs are the S-3 (SS-107), S-6 (SS-111), S-7 (SS-112), S-8 (SS-113), S-9 (SS-114).
They were all struck from the Navy list on 25 January 1937 and subsequently scrapped, date unknown.
