Photo of the Week
June 17, 2012
Again, I would like to urge people to pledge support for Ron's book. I am leaving the same write-up that I had last week below:
Everyone has been enjoying Ron's wonderful old photos for weeks now and I would like now to announce that Ron is publishing a book with 250 of his fantastic photos within . The book is titled The Panama Canal - The Invisible Wonder of the World. Ron sent me an advanced laser printed copy of his book and I am privileged to be one of the first to review it. Ron's concept is a great one as to how he has set up the flow from Atlantic to Pacific.
Excerpts from Ron's introduction:
This book is a pictorial history of the construction of the Panama Canal and the tremendous amount of labor required below the current waterline.
This book is intended to give the viewer a hint of the massive project that today is almost completely invisible.
Comments brought home by a friend who said of a recent transit, "There wasn't much to see." This book, hopefully, will help readers to overcome such expressions. It is my desire that the traveler will realize a bit of the effort expended to make a a smooth sailing between two continents.
Ron is soliciting for pledges to assist him in publishing this fine book. Click on the image below and it will take you to a web site called Kickstarter. You can review a slide show of images from Ron's book and see the levels of pledges. I normally don't do this type of promotion of another's project, but I felt this well worth the promotion.
