Published in February 1912 two years before the Panama Canal opened, this stunning relief map-painting illustrates the Panama railroad, locks, breakwater, and other details of the region. One of the largest engineering projects ever undertaken, the canal had an enormous impact on shipping, creating a passage between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. Prior to the canal's opening, ships had to travel the long and treacherous route around the tip of South America.
