Photo of the Week
March 15, 2015
As promised, here are a couple of other photos that my dad took back in
the early 1950's from Sosa Hill looking down on the town of Balboa.
I couldn't stitch these two together like last week's photo, but here
they are in sequence as he took them. The one above is a
continuation of the left hand side of last week's photo and we will pan
left to the next photo below. The great thing about these two
photos is the DC-3 coming in for a landing at Albrook Field. He
was following the plane in these two photos which is really neat.
The photo above captures the old Balboa Flats wooden housing
nicely. The photo below shows the Prado, Administration
Building, Balboa High School, Gym, Bowling Alley, Athletic Field and
that same DC-3 coming in to land. Great photos..!!
I left this photo rather
large so you can see more detail. It may take some time to load on
slower Internet connections, but well worth it.
What a wonderful old photo
group and yet another great snapshot in time. I am glad that I am
able to share these photos that my dad took so long ago.
Long live our memories of
