The Inauguration of the Panama Canal in Pictures

Today, August 15, 2013, marks the 99th anniversary of the inauguration of the Panama Canal on August 15, 1914 . We thought you might enjoy a gallery of images, mainly provided by the Library of Congress, related to this momentous event so many years ago that changed the lives of people all over the world and became a boon to international commerce and travel.   We hope you enjoy the pictures.
