From the Barefoot Files...

Here is another photo from granddaddy's collection.  I believe this is the approach to the locks at The Panama Canal.  There is another photo labeled the Canal -- but it really does not show much of anything.  This one does.

The lower right appears to have a shadow from the ship showing.  Straight ahead from that shadow you can see the lane where the ship would sail -- tightly through.  I have heard from people who had sailed through the canal that you pass so closely to the sides of the locks -- you could reach out to touch them.

Knowing how long ago this was taken -- I look at those hills on the left and know that by now they are not open land any longer.
