Photo of the Week
February 14, 2010 

This week's photo is another great photo of workers from back in the construction days of the Canal.  These men were not diggers, but railroad rolling stock maintenance men.  I have several photo images that someone sent me of the Balboa Industrial area, specifically the Panama Railroad maintenance shops.  This group of men are standing behind an old wooden passenger car that was in the shop for maintenance.  We always think of the diggers, but there was a whole army of other workers that helped make the Panama Canal a success.  There appears to be a child standing on the car's platform, but unfortunately his/her head was cut out of the photo by the photographer.  What an interesting bunch of people.

Another great capture in time.
