21748-A Typical Native Home Near Old Panama, Canal Zone.


The cottage here exhibited is a typical one
of the natives who live in the Panama Canal
Zone. This one is located near the ruins of
the old town of Panama, which is located on
the border line between the Canal Zone and
the Republic of Panama. In fact, these ruins
are some three or four miles to the north-
east of Panama City, which, by the way,
is not included in the limits of the Canal
Zone, but retained as an integral part of the
Panamanian Republic.
From this typical home of the peasant,
one can rightfully infer that there is no en-
terprise or successful agricultural operations


among the natives. In truth, very little is
grown in Panama near the canal that may
be considered profitable to the investor. Of
course in the fertile valleys one occasionally
finds much luxuriance in the wild vegeta-
tion, and, doubtless, bananas and similar
tropical products could be raised success-
fully if properly grown and cared for.
The roof of this house is inexpensively
constructed from the native grass. The in-
fant, more somber in line than the gentleman
in the picture, has the typical native com-
plexion.
