The fifteenth slide of the Panama Canal Commission booklet depicts the first vessel, the Ancon, making its way through the finished canal. Due to the outbreak of WWI, the opening of the canal did not make headlines. The Panama Canal was finished ahead of schedule and under budget. Total costs were around $375 million.
