Photo of the Week
January 5, 2002

This is a scan of a really classic photo that was published in the Winter 1978 issue of The Panama Canal Review. The photo is two pages wide and couldn't capture the entire photo.  What is missing is the very large hook of the Crane Hercules just to the left of the guy with the red T-Shirt.  This doesn't matter as what I wanted to capture in this photo is complete.  This photo has always been one of my favorites of the more modern time photos showing American workers  doing the down and dirty work.  The Panamanian work force eventually took over these jobs.

This was our job and we did it well for so many years.  These men and those before them are commended for the great job they did in making sure the Panama Canal was in service at all times...
