For many years I was a Cannery Hack in Alaska, I worked at several plants, here are a few pictures from those wanderings. In looking at some of the pictures I have found so far it looks like there is a large box of pictures missing.
As I sort and tag the pictures they will be added here along with maybe some recollections and stories of what happened and the viewpoint from the trenches so to speak. I don’t remember taking the pictures with the intent of really documenting what happened so there will probably be some gaps in what I can show. Some of the earlier plants I worked at were not as careful as the later plants about keeping cameras out of the plant so I might have more earlier pictures than later times.
I started my Salmon career at Pederson Point for New England Fish Company (NEFCO) while in college. I was a Machinist Helper / Trainee, the bottom of the totem pole.
I hope you enjoy the history.
