Photo of the Week
June 11. 2006
follow up to last week's photo, I had a few people write in and add to the
topic of the ladder dredge Corozal. I had mentioned the model
that was once in the old Civil Affairs Building in Ancon. Well, the
model is still alive and very well! CZ Images contributor Bill Fall sent
in this wonder photo he took recently at the museum at Miraflores Locks.
This model shows an excellent detail the old dredge.
"Many times a piece of equipment was used to supply steam/compressed air for drilling or other equipment like lighting, pumps, fire fighting/wash down, galley and quarters for working crews or just a work platform for projects and slides. From the looks of this photo, it is obviously the Corozal would not be the choice of dredge for that area."
Thank you Bill and Joe for adding to the photo of the week.
