Photo of the Week
August 24, 2008
Aerials are over for now. The shoulder is getting better
fast. The doctor can't figure out how it is getting better so
fast, but I told him I am from the Valley of the Rio Chagres. All
those who drink the water of the Rio Chagres heal quickly and live a
long and good life!
Well, since I feel better, I will post a really great old photo taken
during the construction of a undetermined set of locks. Here are
two guys chilling out or loafing on the stairs of a lock's
incline. You can see the construction of the towing locomotive
tracks on each side of the stairs, so I would say this photo was taken
on the center wall of one of the Locks. I love this photo...one
guy reclining on the wall and the other with dirty cover-alls and smoke
in his mouth. I wonder who these guys were and what their job
Aren't these old photos
great!!!? Long live our American Heritage and the construction of
the Panama Canal.
No identification as to
the origin of this photo with the exception of "Panama Canal"
written on the back.
