Photo of the Week
November 18, 2007
The caption for the image above is:
"Entrance to pier area, Cristobal, Canal Zone. Terminals Building is on the left and Customs Station on the right."
The caption for the image below is:
"R.M.S. Queen Elizabeth and the S.S. United States, two of the world's largest tourist liners docked at Cristobal Harbor, at the same time."
So, there you have it. I guessed the S.S. United States last week, but didn't know that the other ship was the R.M.S. Queen Elizabeth.
Here is a note from Andrew when sending me these images:
"I don't know if you are aware
of the circumstances when these photos were taken in the 50's but
anyway, all those big ships at the time were "transatlantic
liners" running between Europe and New York. In the winter
months when the dry season would kick in, they would put them on the
tourist runs into the Caribbean."
