Notes

Abstract:
The thirteenth slide in the Panama Canal Commission booklet depicts the Pedro Miguel locks. Unlike the Atlantic side of the Canal, engineers discovered there was insufficient foundation on the Pacific side to build the locks like the Gatun locks. It is also home to the Locks Locomotive Repair Facility.
