This is the 1971 Caribbean yearbook from Cristobal High School, located on the Atlantic side of the isthmus of the Panama Canal Zone in the town of Coco Solo. The contents include faculty and student activities for grades 7 through 12. The end of the yearbook has lots of cool advertisements from familiar places in Colon and the Atlantic side of the Panama Canal Zone.
This yearbook was part of the Panama Canal Museum archives. When they closed down, I gave the museum a large donation in exchange for some of their yearbooks. I already have a copy of this yearbook in my personal collection, so I am selling this copy to recover some of the money from my donation. This yearbook is in new condition with no writing. There is a slight color contrast at the top inch of the cover because this yearbook was stored on a shelf adjacent to a slightly smaller book. you have to look hard to notice this color differentiation. This is a rare and valuable document about life and culture in the former Panama Canal Zone.
Many of the yearbooks from the Panama Canal Zone have been digitized and are available as free downloadable JPGs on the University of Florida's archival website, but you cannot search the text on graphics and reading jpegs on iBooks is not easy on your eyes.. You can also purchase xerox copies of yearbooks from Classmates.com for about $80, but it is much better to purchase an original copy of this yearbook to keep in your own collection.
