21743-Culebra Cut Near Culebra Showing Cucaracha Land Slide of 47 Acres at
the Left, Panama Canal.


This scene gives one a little fuller view of
the Cucaracha slide, which covered an area
of 47 acres, as detailed in the description of
view 21757. The camera is facing south
towards the Pacific end of the Canal, and
low-lying on the left of the Cut is the Cu-
caracha slide. That the slope on this side is
not at all steep is easily noticeable on c:nm--
parison with the precipitous hil.Hide on the
opposite side. Another comparison will
show that the steep side is faced with more
rock than the other.
In the distance to the left a steam-shovel


may be seen resolutely at work on the task
of removing the dirt from a place, already
,ear ly excavated sufficiently. In the im-
nediate foreground are six drills, used in
blasting out the bottom of the canal, which
throughout the entire 8 miles and more of
the Cuilebra Ciiut must be kept at a minimum
i-dth of 3"'o feet, anrd even enough more at
wherever angles occur in the course of the
canal, to allow the turning of a r1,00 foot
boat. The men in the right foreground are
carrying drinking water from a source be-
v fnd the slope.
