Photo of the Week
November 23, 2014

Before last week's detour we were viewing a set of Panama Canal Graphics Branch 35mm slides of Aerial Canal Zone that were used by Mr. Laverty's presentation at the 1993 Panama Canal Reunion.  Well I have found another box of 35mm slides that were sent to me with a legend sheet titled Panama Canal V. I. P.
Slides and dated 7-12-69.  This set of slides are really great slides produced by the Panama Canal Graphics Branch as well.  There are a bunch of aerials and some ground shots like the one above.  I really, really love this photo as it brings back so many memories sitting on top of Contractor's Hill in the evening and night.  Contractor's Hill was a big hang out for us young and adventurous people that liked Contractor's Hill as a party spot and a great place to watch the submarine races.  What a perfect photo!  A bit out of focus because of being shot with a time exposure which also caused the streaks of light from vessels in the cut.  One very nice thing is the site of the old Summit radio antenna field that went away when modern technology took over.

I will post the rest of the slides in the next few weeks to come.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL OF YOU.  We certainly have a lot to be thankful for as we all had paradise for a home ...the Canal Zone.
