Photo of the Week
August 14, 2011

great photo from the Fred and Lilian Ramsey collection that was sent to me by Richard Crowe who is Fred Ramsey's Great Nephew. 

This week's photo is a classic one which was captioned in the photo album as Jamaicans having picnic on Easter - 1906.  Everyone is very well dressed for the occasion.  Can't imagine how hot some of those clothes were in the Panama heat.  A couple of the guys are sporting a cone shaped straw hat which was a hat that I have seen other West Indians wearing in other photos from the construction days and even more modern post cards that I have from Haiti.   Great photo!!

Many more great photos coming in the weeks ahead.
