Photo of the Week
May 29, 2005
This weeks photo is a super
treat. This is a aerial photo of the Balboa Clubhouse that we all
knew so well. This photo was taken December 27, 1950.
The best part of this photo is how
you can see the additions to the original building. Anything
beyond the top roof is add-on. You can see the last ruminants of
the two columns at the entrance way from the original building.
See the photo below that was the original Balboa Clubhouse.
This comparison is so wonderful
showing the metamorphosis of the Balboa Clubhouse. Isn't this the
The newly constructed Balboa
Theater is very evident in this photo. The Swimming Pool in the
back of the Clubhouse can be seen along with the pump house for the
pool. The long roof that is between the Clubhouse and Swimming
Pool is the old bowling alley.
photo is from the collection of the late Mr. Richard Erbe. Bottom photo
from my personal collection.
Long live the memory of
our Canal Zone.
