Photo of the Week
August 18, 2013
This week we have three photos that were sent in by Bob Dryja of his Grandfather in Panama - 1918.
attaching three pictures of my grandfather. Albert Clagg was a
mounted policeman on the Atlantic side in 1918. He is by a railroad
track in this picture, but I do not know where exactly. The next
picture shows him with his wife Mabel. She sailed to the Canal
Zone for their marriage. I do not know who is the little girl sitting
on the horse. I wonder if Canal Zone police rode horses
generally during the canal construction? The last picture shows
Albert standing by his bee hives somewhere in the Canal Zone. I
remember people have a variety of hobbies and activities. Albert
evidently was a part of this tradition. Who thinks of beekeepers
being in the Canal Zone?"
It looks like all these photos were
taken in Gatun.
