Photo of the Week
September 9, 2012
This is another great photo from Ron Armstrong. This photo
was probably take the same day and the Photo of the Week for August
19, 2012. The photo caption reads, "Ancon Baseball Park. View
of the crowd from the grand stand during athletic meet. July 4,
1912". What a great time the
builders of the Panama Canal had back in the day. The Canal Zone
was always the best place to live for generations. Check out the
long tents on the side of the hill. I wonder what they were
for? Another note, what is the water body in the
background. Didn't know Ancon had any ponds or lakes.
Could be the swamp where Albrook Field was filled in later.
Thank you Ron for another great photo.
