Photo of the Week
January 11, 2015

Another great aerial photo from the Panama Canal V. I. P. Slides and dated 7-12-69 produced by the Panama Canal Graphics Branch. We visited Gatun Locks last week and now we travel to the Pedro Miguel Locks this week.  Wonderful aerial photo of the Pedro Miguel Locks, the towns of Pedro Miguel and Paraiso and the cut back in the days of the Canal Zone.

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

Below I captured an aerial shot off of Google Maps that shows the same area today.  I wish I could have gotten a better capture, but this will do.  Note the hill that was across the Canal from Paraiso is basically gone now note how wide the channel is now.
