Gus Steigler's days in Panama.
too much is known about Gus except he was in Panama from 1910 and through the Canal
construction days. He evidently was a photo bug and had a camera with him most
everywhere he went. We don't think that was his job, but he was certainly privileged
to some areas that would probably have a restricted entry. This collection of photographs
probably never became public. Bob Edwards who is Gus's Great Nephew found the photos
and contacted me about them. He has sent me over 100 of them as scanned images.
I have displayed 75 of them in this presentation. I have broken them down as
you see them listed below. This is like a family album and you will see many photos
of people. This is a wonderful collection and I hope all of you enjoy them as much
as I have.
To your left, Gus is pictured on board ship going to Panama and then in 1948 at a Veterans Hospital.
