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.
