Some great old pictures of a transit through the Panama Canal, sometime in the 1930s. My parents found these pics in a photo album but don’t know who they belonged to.

The Rangitane was built in 1929 for the Britain-NZ route, and in 1940 was one of the largest passenger liners to be sunk during World War II, about 300 miles east of NZ.

The captions were hand-written on the back of some photos, or on some old postcards.
