Continuing the latest batch of photos from Tony Smyth, who writes :

"More photos from The Black.  The 'Submarine'  was a lower level room (not quite a basement but below ground level) that was mostly disused while I was in Blacklion so it was decided, if I recall correctly, to turn it into some form of alternative Rec Room."

To clarify, Tony later wrote : "The 'Submarine' and the Recreation Hall were two separate rooms. The Recreation Room was, as indicated, immediately below the Chapel and featured the 'Mondrian Wall' , as per the photo, but the 'Submarine' which is mentioned in the text associated with this photo was at the north end of the building (pretty much directly below the main 'conference' room, where the stage was located.) — at an even lower level than the Recreation Room ."
