A procession of soldiers marching down a street alongside several other people toward Panama's cathedral.
Scope and Content:
Underwood & Underwood Brothers Elmer and Bert Underwood founded Underwood & Underwood in 1880 in Ottawa, Kansas. Starting with door to door sales and eventually branching out into freelance photography work, the brothers' company grew large enough to relocate to New York City in 1891. At the turn of the century the firm was selling 300,000 stereographs a year. After stereograph production was discontinued in the 1920s, Underwood & Underwood sold its stereographic stock to The Keystone View Company. Source:

6455 We are in the best quarter of the city, and are
only a few minutes walk from the harbor-side. The tree-
shaded enclosure at the left is a public park where band-
concerts are often given-a popular resort in the evening
and on holidays. It was in that square that the Pana-
manian Act of Independence was read in November, 1903.
The soldiers approaching the cathedral include some
men of negro, Indian and mixed blood, but most of them
are of Spanish descent and proud of their blood. Like
their South American relatives, they have been born and
bred in the Catholic faith which was brought here by
sixteenth century explorers.
The cathedral yonder is thoroughly Spanish in its
general style, resembling the church buildings in Cuba,
Mexico and the Southern republics. It is, however, not
so richly ornamented as the famous churches of Mexico,
Peru and Ecuador, for this Isthmus country has never
been the source of any great wealth.
S Shops of various kinds occupy the ground floors of many
S' of the buildings on this street. The local merchants-a

good many Chinese and Hebrews among the number-
keep fairly desirable supplies of goods but do not make
so much of window-displays as they do in American cities.
Floors above the shops are used for dwellings.
The talk one would hear in a spot like this is largely in
Spanish, though English is becoming more and more
common and French is not infrequent.
