Abstract: "Laying the Floor of Pedro Miguel Lock. This is the most monumental piece of work on the [Panama] Canal, and the most pictorial. The huge approaches, quite different in form from Gatun--for all the locks have character, and the character of their builders--are only arches to save concrete. Here were men enough laying the concrete floor--others swarming over the gates not yet covered with their armor plate. Beyond is the lock just shown between the gates." Artwork by Joseph Pennell.
