Photo of the Week
July 24, 2011
This week's photo series is from a group of six photos taken on an outing that Fred, Lilian and friends took in what was left of the French attempt to dig Culebra Cut. Remember, these photos were taken (in 1905ish) before the American construction actually began. Remnants of old French equipment are seen in these photos. These captures in time are very special as many never saw what the aftermath of the French exodus looked like. This equipment has been sitting there for many years and most of it was worthless to put back in operation.
photos above and below are that of some type of touring track vehicle
that the Ramsey's took to see what the bottom of the future Culebra
Cut looked like back then. You can see the old shovels, dump
cars and other equipment abandoned along the track route. It
appears that Fred and Lilian invited a female friend along on this
tour. There are not notes as to who she was. The others in
the photos appear to be workers of some sort. Fred seemed to
have a passion for having his photo taken standing sideways.
Many more great photos coming in the weeks ahead.
