Miraflores Swing Bridge
This is a picture of myself and my brother Douglas sitting on a section of the Miraflores Bridge. It was always a lot of fun to be in the center section of the bridge, when the two sides would swing out, and the ships would enter into the locks right next to you! The entrance to the Panama Canal is behind us, and ships are approaching the Miraflores Locks. This photo was taken in 1956. The Bridge of the Americas has yet to be built, that in present day, would be seen in the background.

Miraflores Swing Bridge "closed"
In this picture, the Miraflores Swing Bridge is completely closed. It is the very center section where I had the opportunity to stand and watch the ships enter the Panama Canal "right next to where I was standing". Truly an exciting thing to do, especially as a child. That experience has left a lasting impression on me. Photo donated by

The Miraflores Locks was always my favorite locks of the Panama Canal. As a child, I enjoyed being in the middle section of the Miraflores Swing Bridge during a locks transit. It was fun to watch the ships go right by you so closely!
Miraflores Locks, is the first set of locks when entering the Panama Canal from the Pacific Ocean. Pedro Miguel Locks.
