Photo of the Week
August 21, 2005
An interesting three
photos are the photos of the week this week. Bob Wong, CZ Images
contributor sent me these chance of a life time images.
The photo above is at Balboa Stadium in 1946 with Joe
DiMaggio at bat. The Yankees played the "All Stars" that
day. Bob was wondering if these were local players. This
could have been a tour supporting troop morale in the Canal Zone.
Note the Balboa Bowling Alley in the background. Also, these are
the old grandstands that were demolished later to make way for the ones
Below top shows the outfield wall with local
advertising. Not the Stars and Stripes flying in the back near the
trees along Roosevelt Avenue.
Below bottom shows Charlie Keller in the middle
posing for photos by the troops. Another good shot of the bowling
alley in the back.
More Canal Zone history almost forgotten.
Thanks for sharing Bob...
