21712-North Approach Wall Under Construction, City of Paraiso in Distance;
Panama Canal.


This view represents the earlier stages in
the construction of a side wall at the Pedro
Miguel locks. The wall is shown when it
has not risen much above the base. Altho
the wall is kept perpendicular on its inner
side it is gradually narrowed down until it
is not quite one-fifth as wide at the top as at
the base.
In the distance are seen the hills surround-
ing the canal which has been dug through
what is known as the Culebra Cut. The
town of Paraiso is also visible. There are


but two good-sized cities on the Isthmus of
Panama; namely, Panama, at the Pacific end
of the canal, with a population of about
40,000, and Colon, on the Atlantic side, with
a population of 15,000. However, there are
numerous towns along the route of the
;anal, a, Cilebra, Empire, Paraiso, etc. The
name of the last mentioned town is the Span-
ish word for "paradise." Most Americans
would consider the place misnamed. The
name Pedro Miguel, also is equivalent to
Peter Michael in English.
