With all of the recent posts regarding Taboga I realized that I really don't know much about it. I started to dig around and the info is somewhat hard to come by. Fortunately, I was at the National Archives Monday and Tuesday adn was lucky to get into the still photos section. I found a few photos of teh US Naval Station, Taboga, CZ.

So as not to clutter the previous post, I'll post them here.

Well I don't know why the pictures are sideways.

FYI, the last two pictures, the civilian in the light suit is Mr. Ralph A. Bard, Assistant Secretary of the Navy while he was on an inspection tour of the Canal Zone.

Once again thank you Charlie. These are some beautifully clear shots.

I like where the sign "To Our Wives And Sweethearts" is located, right above the bar.

HAH thanks Jerry I needed a chuckle! I thought you were making a joke until I read the second sentence. Wise words for sure.
