I don’t know which way is up, Control room of the UB-110 German submarine, 1918.

From War History Online:

The twin-screw German submarine U.B. 110 was built by Blohm & Voss, Hamburg. …

The U-boat’s forward diving rudders jammed in the up position; her port motor short-circuited; and fuel tank was damaged. When she came to the surface, exuding oil, the destroyer GARRY rammed her twice and hit her with several bursts of gunfire. With the upper works torn open, the U-boat rolled over and sank. Thirteen survivors were picked up. …

She was towed on the 19th December 1918 from Wallsend to the Northumberland Dock at Howdon and was subsequently sold as scrap.

The album of photographs, taken by Frank & Sons of South Shields, documents the U.B. 110 in extensive detail. The photographs provide a rare glimpse into the mechanics and atmosphere of the raised German submarine. …

The album is from 1918 and documents the U.B. 110 before she was scrapped…
