21 i58-Culebra Cut Showing Outskirts of Culebra in the Distance, Panama Canal.
Here the spectator is looking north over
the Culebra Cut where one of the eight
angles is located. Small portions of the tw
highest hills along the Cut are here visible.
On the right is Gold Hill and on the left is
Contractor's Hill. Near the former is the
famous Cucaracha Slide, described in views
21743 and 21757, and at the other occurred
the large 75 acre slide described in view
The buildings in the distance on the west
ledge of the Cut belong to the town of Cu-
.;:ebra. These will all be removed by the
time the work in this section is completed.
The Postoffice building, and a large Y. M.
Copyright riP,hy- The
C. A. building were already removed by the
i.iddle of .913.
In this connection it is interesting to note
that many other villages of mushroom
growth, and also several old towns, will be
wiped out of existence when the canal is
put into operation. Most of the older towns
thus to be wiped out are located in the low
ground from Bas Obispo to the Gatun Dam,
and will be submerged beneath the waters
f Gatun Lake. This submerging of the
lowlands has necessitated a relocation of
the Panama Railroad, which is already
Keystone FiVw Company.
