Photo of the Week
September 10, 2017
We have another historic moment photograph again this week. This
photo was sent in by CZ Images contributor Peggy Huff. This photo
was taken at Pedro Miguel Locks in 1964 of the Royal Yacht
Britannia. In 1964 Prince Philip transited the Panama Canal in
route to the Galapagos Islands with a group of friends. I early
noted that this photo was taken in 1953 when Queen Elisabeth visited
Panama on her Commonwealth tour, but was incorrect as she traveled on
board the S.S. Gothic during the 1953 trip.
More about the Queen in the future.
Thank you for sending in this great
photo Peggy. Peggy said the man in the photo is her grandfather
who was Lock Master at the time.
