The Panama Canal Review – January 1, 1954
When I found this week's photo and story behind it, I thought, "What a great place we lived in!" One way or another, all Zone kids were taken care of. These children have faces of joy for the great gifts that Santa has given them. I visited the Gamboa Penitentiary shops many times while it was still under the Canal Zone Government's control to purchase items made by the "penitentiary guests". Good stuff...as they had a first rate shop there. God...I miss the days of the Canal Zone!!
And on this note...Merry Christmas everyone. I hope that the photos and memories I have provided in the past years and weeks give you a little cheer and reminisce about the very, very good days we all lived in another life.
