Complete set of cards in Very Good + condition, probably kept as a souvenir pack and rarely if ever played with. "The four suits show different aspects of PANAMA and the great work of the Canal. The Club suit portrays the construction of the Canal from the closing of the Chagres River to the removal of the last great slide. The Heart suit and Joker portray life in the Republic of Panama outside the zone, with views of the interesting natural beauties of the Isthmus. The Spade suit illustrated various warships of the U.S. Atlantic and Pacific Fleets passing through the Canal, and a Naval coaling Station. The Diamond suit is devoted to views of the Canal Zone and of merchant vessels in transit through it." A very tidy set.Binding
