Photo of the Week
August 14, 2016
I found this photos to be interesting as they show different times in a timeline back during Ralph Sartor's days in Panama. The photo above and directly below shows the statue next to the Colon House on Colon Beach. This area of swamp that was the area first filled and built on in 1850. It was a pleasant area because of the constant on-shore wind from the bay. The bottom photo shows the brand-new Washington Hotel where the monument was relocated to at the time of the hotel's completion. Across the street is the old Christ Church.
I was looking on the
Internet to see if the monument is still by the Washington Hotel, but it
isn't. I see on the Google Earth aerial that there is a building
on this lawn now. I also found a photo of the monument that looks
like it is on the side of the road by the entrance to Colon, but
couldn't be certain of that. If anyone has any current photos of
the monument and it's location, please let me know.
