The Inter-Oceanic Canal of Nicaragua. Its Probable Influence Upon Japan. by Captain H. C. Taylor
[Japan] Very scarce publication about the possible construction of a canal linking the Caribbean Sea (and therefore the Atlantic Ocean) with the Pacific Ocean. It has been talked about for around 200 years but has never been built. Taylor read his paper at a meeting of The Geographical Society of Japan at their hall at Nishi Konya-machi, Kiobashi [Kyobashi], Tokio [Tokyo] on Tuesday evening, the 27th January, 1891. The meeting was attended by Viscount Enomoto, lieutenants working for NYK, Mr. G. Goward (The World's Fair Commissioner to Japan), and a Mr. R. M. Varnum. The lecture was in English and interpreted into Japanese by Mr. S. Shiga.
