Photo of the Week
November 24, 2019
It does the heart good to see history being preserved so well.
CZ Images contributor Bill Fall was riding around in Colon last week
and snapped to the photos below. This building was the Cristobal
School that was built in 1918. The letters above the front door
are still present to which say "Cristobal Colon". This
is quite a majestic old building and is characteristic of the fine architecture
the builders of the Panama Canal, Canal Zone government buildings and
housing. Bill said that the building houses government
offices. One thing that caught Bill's eye were the doors on each
end of the building. There words above these doors. Boys /
Girls. You can see the word Girls in the photo at the
bottom. The boys and girls must have been segregated in the
early days. This might have been for recess purposes keeping to
two apart. Only thinking out loud there.
photo above is one that I found a long time ago on eBay. The
building looks the same as today.
you Bill for sending these two gems.
Thanksgiving is this week, I want the say Happy Thanksgiving to all of
you CZ Images visitors.
