Rich Family Collection 1 – Perth Amboy Submarine – Sharks

Orleans Realtor Martin Rich has generously provided an account by his Dad Richard Fredrick Rich (Jr.) of the 1918 Perth Amboy Submarine Attack attack (read the full account here), and some unique photos of the salvage attempts of barges towed by the tug Perth Amboy, which was attacked by a German submarine.
Martin also included photos of some dogfish and a couple of great white shark photos. No, they weren’t part of the salvage attempt.
