From the Stacks: USS Utah Scrapbook

Those working with the rehousing project of PCMC come across some interesting items! Recently, we rehoused a scrapbook of the USS Utah passing through the Canal in 1923. Included are picture postcards of the Navy visiting areas in the Canal Zone and Panama City. This item offers a rare glimpse of the interior of a naval vessel and daily activities of the seamen. Thumbing through, it seems as though they picked up some peculiar travelers along the way!

Do these photos bring back any memories of meeting naval or military personnel in the Zone?
