Is there a good enough location to dive for it?
(Unlikely, however I Hadda ask....
 Shoreline may havve moved, been filled, etc.)

Curious Tesla Reference:
In reading some Antique Detective Stories (details on
request) One was built around some submarine experiments,
ca 1910.  Tesla's Diving Boat got a reference, by name.

That was a boat, not a submarine. Didn't dive. Look at the patent drawing and you'll see what controls it really had. I have a "Radicon" radio-controlled bus from the 1950's which is similar in principle. Spark gap transmitter, coherer receiver, and sequential control mechanism. Still works. There were a number of such toys built in Japan at that time and they fetch high prices on eBay.
