Front Street and Panama R.R. Yard. Colon, 1907
Today we are featuring the second train-related image in the series of posts celebrating the 160th anniversary of the Panama Railroad and leading up to the Panama Canal Society Reunion. This Construction Era image is part of the extensive photographic documentation undertaken by the U.S. Government during that time period.
Please feel free to share any recollections that you might have of seeing old photographs of this area, impressions of how it changed over time, and other thoughts or information you feel like sharing.
Later on we will feature more of these official photographs, along with snapshots created by workers and tourists.
