Photo of the Week
March 1, 2020
Continuing with the Jim Wich
collection this week with two more '50s vintage photos scanned from
35mm slides. This week I am posting a photo of a dipper dredge
and a tug boat. Why these two photos? Remember I mentioned
that rusty brown color that was used on floating equipment well here
is that same color used on this dredge and tug boat.
don't know for sure which of the three Bucyrus Dipper Dredges the
Panama Canal owned is shown in this photo. There was the Las
Cascadas, Paraiso and Gamboa. The Cascadas
was the last to go and I have other photos on this website of the Cascadas.
is a photo taken in the Culebra Cut by Gold Hill. Here is the
RMS Caronia being escorted by a PCC tug with that same rusty brown
color. The RMS Caronia was part of the Cunard Line and
was considered the premiere cruise ship on the 1950s. She was
sometime referred to as the "Millionaires Yacht".
from the Wich collection next week.
