    It appears to be Charles Lindbergh at a swimming event at the Balboa Pool, along with other dignitaries, that could be the Governor of the Canal Zone, the US Military Commander and others. In the 30’s, the “Red, White and Blue Troupe” was a world-famous Canal Zone swimming and diving group that performed for visiting dignitaries.

    All Glass Plate Photographs had a date at the bottom of the picture that would help id them.  ie Nov.3 Panama Independence Day.  This picture is so close that its hard to see anything to help identify it.  Sometimes there are several shots taken of the same party and that helps.  If this picture is from the original set of Glass Plates, there is an Index book that could help you. I don’t have one. Sorry. cleve soper
