Photo of the Week
December 17, 2000
|Okay folks...this is getting good now. On September 17, 2000, I posted a photo and narration about how they made the approach to the North End of Gatun Locks. That photo showed a dredge "low and dry" after excavating the area down to 70 ft. below sea level. Well, here is a photo that I recently purchased that shows that same dredge floating and excavating. I was very excited when I saw this post card and had to get it to add to the previous presentation. As you can see in this photo, a large retaining wall has been constructed on the end of the lock chamber to hold back the flooded area during dredging... Great Stuff!!!
