"On 11 April 1900, the United States purchased one of a series of Irish émigré John P. Holland's experimental submarines, the Holland VI, for USD 150,000. The boat by this time had been in the water for three years undergoing trials and modifications. Commissioned on 12 October 1900 as the USS Holland and later designated SS-1, she had a short service life of seven years, before being decommissioned on 21 November 1910. The photograph of the Holland was taken at Greenpoint, Long Island, in 1899 in her final form as accepted by the Navy."
