Looking up from the pitch dark hull of the USS Holland towards the main deck, 5-stories up. This compartment, which was subsequently added to the ship in 1969, is situated between the two cargo missile cranes. It was used as a storage space for recycling contaminated water from submarines the Holland tendered. The squares are scratched paint samples used to test for radiation.
