Photo of the Week
January 29. 2006 

      This week's photo is a scanned image of a wonderful old colorized post card.  I recently acquired it in a auction as I couldn't resist it.  It is a Canal Construction era photo of the Gatun Train Station.  I love the soft tones and people in this image.  This post card company has several post cards with the same type of soft tones and people scenes.  I have a few others that I will post in the future.  
       The hill in the background has changed so much since the days of the construction.  This hill now has the bridge that goes over the railroad bed into the town of Gatun.  See previous photo of the week.  The big building on top of the hill can be seen in many early Gatun Locks construction photos.  Items of interest in the photo is the concession stand and small locomotive.
