Photo of the Week
April 3, 2016

Continuing with the Canal Zone Scouting theme that I will be posting until this year's Panama Canal Reunion here is another fine historical photo taken at Balboa Stadium during a 4th of July parade.  Although the photo is not dated, it appears to be in the 1920's by the type of uniform the scouts are wearing.  This photo shows the old covered bleachers that were original for the Balboa Stadium.  They were later modified to what most of us remember when living there.  There are alot of military present this day and a military band is playing on the constructed platform near where the pitchers mound would be.  The track is set up with lines as a big part of the 4th of July celebrations of this day was having track and field meets.  Cristobal scouts are passing in front of the photographer when the photo was taken.

A great old sepia photo and capture in time.
