Photo of the Week
August 20, 2000

The "Photo of the Week" salutes this old building and two others just like it.  Does this building look familiar?  The caption above says that it is the Balboa Restaurant, which it originally was built to be.  Most of us knew it as the Balboa Police station after 1936.  I was sent this photo by historian Bill Fall last week and it got my curiosity going.  I found out a lot about this building, it's sister buildings and the story behind them all.  Another piece of our Canal Zone history recorded for all to know.  Visit the Panama Canal Restaurant presentation on the Canal Zone Images web site by clicking here.
