Panama Canal:

This is the Administration Building. It’s hard to see the 1913 year under the word “Gatun” but the building (and the Canal) date back that far. The Canal is entirely a working zone, employing hundreds in a very-well-choreographed dance that moves around 15,000 ships through each year. It cost our ship something like $240,000 to gain passage.
