Photo of the Week
May 23, 2010 

With all the photos going around on the Internet via email showing the destruction of New Town in Gatun, I found this photo that was taken by Life Magazine back in the U.S. Third Locks era.  This is a really super photo of the excavation, damming the lake and notching out the walls for the new lock gates.  This photo must have been taken just prior to the termination of work when WWII started.  The newly constructed New Town is clearly seen on the banks of the new locks.  No wonder ACP had to remove those houses.  I never realize they were so close to the excavated locks.  This is a very good photo and am glad I found it.  

Another great historical capture in time.
