Historic PostcardHistoric Postcard from Panama Canal showing cranes during the construction of the Miraflores Locks.
Wikipedia writes: Miraflores is the name of one of the three locks that form part of the Panama Canal, and the name of the small lake that separates these locks from the Pedro Miguel Locks upstream. In the Miraflores locks, vessels are lifted (or lowered) 54 feet (16.5 m) in two stages, allowing them to transit to or from the Pacific Ocean port of Balboain Panama City. Ships cross below the Bridge of the Americas, which connects North and South America.
