The closest think I've found to match your pic it's the British D-Class submarine. What you call "towers" are the aerials for its wireless com system. But since I'm not a subs expert I'm not 100% sure about the identity.
Slightly resembles the British K class steam powered sumbmarine, however because the upper works behind the conning tower fade so much into the sky background that it is hard to tell. The K class had a very elongated wintergarten behind the conning tower with a smoke stack at it's far end.
It MIGHT be one of the U-boats that was captured and toured the US after the war but I don't think any of the 3 Chesters would be in the picture if that was the case. Also, its hard to tell but the uniforms appear to be German, so I'm gonna stick with U-53.
