Photo of the Week
December 4, 2011

As a continuation of last week's photos, "Early Gatun Buildings", here is a grand snap shot of the master mind William L. Sibert's house (left) on what the photo calls Gatun Hill.  This hill must have overlooked the Gatun Locks project. From 1907 through 1914, Sibert was a member of the Isthmian Canal Commission and was responsible for the building of a number of critical parts of the Panama Canal, including the Gatun Locks and Dam, the West Breakwater in Colon, and the channel from Gatun Lake to the Pacific Ocean.  This is a grand looking house, similar to what Goethals lived in and later moved to Ancon to  become the Canal Zone Governor's house.

More to come next week...
