Photo of the Week
September 11, 2016
This week's photos are a couple from the Joseph Nanko collection.
Above is actually a Foto Flatau post card that he must have purchased while visiting in Colon. It is a great photo showing people strolling along the seawall in front of the Hotel Washington. There are a couple of Naval ships at anchorage which would have been common during the 1940's war years. If you look through the palms you can see in the distance a life ring hanging on a fence which is the the old Washington Hotel pool that I have shown several times here on the website.
Below is an interesting candid shot taken by Joseph of some acquaintances sitting pool side at the Washington Hotel. Joseph wrote on the back of the photo, "Cushing, Robinson and a girl named Patty - Washington Hotel swimming pool. Canal Zone, Panama.
Thank you for sharing your
Dad's photos with all of us. More to come in the future.
