After the Panama disaster, two men, an American and a Frenchman, came forward to persuade America to carry on building, and make a treaty with Colombia for rights over the canal. The Colombians arrived at Colon and demanded transport to Panama.
They were given a coach and engine but when they arrived in Panama they were arrested. This is the original artwork for Look and Learn issue no 933 (8 December 1979).Severino Baraldi biography
