Excerpt from The Panama Guide

First the city built up along the reef near the sea, then back into the swampy land behind the reef. The French added to it in the early s0'e by dredging material from their canal channel and depositing borrowed rock and earth upon the swampy land, making a foundation for their employes' village, now a village of American Canal workers, known as Cristobal. When the American Canal builders came here in 1904, Colon had ten thousand people, and about nine thou sand oi them lived in shanties built on piles. At high tide the houses were surrounded by water, so that no one could walk along the streets back of Front Street without danger of falling into the mire. Since then the town site has been filled in, and the Panamans and the Panama railroad are paying for the work. Colon is clean, well drained, and healthful today, although it doesn't look it. It has inhabitants, and there are in Cristobal. In 1870 Colon had inhabitants, and in 1896, Colon has suffered from several destructive fires, the more important being that of 1885, referred to on page 127, and that of March, 1911, when ten city blocks were burned and people left without shelter.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 344 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.7in.Excerpt from The Panama GuideThis Guide Book answers most of the questions that I have been asked during the past four years regarding Panama and the Panama Canal. It is a compilation from reliable sources. Only a few of the many books on the Panama Canal are reliable, and in my text I have quoted only these: Panama by Albert Edwards, Panama in Porters Progress of the Nations Series, Old Panama by Dr. C. L. G. Anderson, the Panama Governments school history by Sosa and Arce, the annual reports of the Isthmian Canal Commission, and The Canal Record are especially commended to those who wish a deeper knowledge of Panama and the Canal than this guide book can give.
