Photo of the Week
January 22, 2012

Continuing with the same collection of old photos taken in Gatun during the construction days and featuring people at work and play.

This week's photo is photo titled "Locomotive Crane Unloading Sand Dock - April 25, '09".  Great capture of equipment and men working.  This is a Isthmian Canal Commission 20-ton Locomotive Crane, built by the American Hoist and Derrick Co., which was unloading sand from to be used in the Gatun Locks and / or Dam project to make concrete.  The channel of water is the old French Canal.

Another great photo from this collection.

More to come next week...
