Casco Viejo, Panama: Before and After Photos

Panama, Casco Antiguo

 

It is always fun to find photos of early Casco Viejo and try to match it with today`s Casco.  This postcard seems to be from the early republic, and the corner of 12th with Santa Ana`s church at the back can only be what today is known as the corner of Café Coca Cola (well, not the café itself, but the Pio Pio behind, see the pink property at the corner).

So here it is! before and after…. my vote goes to the original design because even if more simple, it had an extended roof that offered protection from the rain.  What do you think?
