Lock on the Panama Canal, 1931. Artist: Unknown

Lock on the Panama Canal, 1931. The idea of building a canal between the Atlantic and Pacific was first planned by the French civil engineer and builder of the Suez Canal, Ferdinand de Lesseps. The French began work in 1880, but 9 years later the difficulties posed by the terrain, disease and spiralling costs doomed the project to failure. The United States bought the land in 1904 for $40 million, and proceeded to complete the 80 kilometre long canal between 1904 and 1914. The building of the canal cost the lives of an estimated 25, 000 workers due to accidents and tropical diseases. The photograph was taken during a Cunard Line cruise to the West Indies between January and March 1931.
