Photo of the Week
November 4, 2007
Anyway, this week's photo of the week is a really great shot of the old train station and wonderful old residential buildings along main street Gorgona. I am not sure why there was such a big crowd at the station on this day, but must have been a special day. As mentioned in last week's photo of the week, this station is the standard construction design of the American Construction Day towns railroad stations. See more old stations of this type by clicking here.
As I said earlier, I have walked just about every square foot of the Gorgona Island and what you see in this photo is mostly under water today. The old railroad bed basically ran between the front island and back island. You can see where the rail line ran behind the front island as a channel of water separating the islands. While walking the rear island, I found the foundations for the large residental buildings as you see in this photo. It was so very interesting walking these islands. I hope to get a boat and revisit these islands when I visit Panama this coming February.
Long live the history of our Ditch Digger heritage.
