Photographer: Andrew Ruppenstein
Taken: March 22, 2010
Caption: Cannery Divers Memorial Marker - wide view
Additional Description: From an interpretive sign about 200 feet east of the memorial: "In the 1930s canneries were big business. Canneries lined the streets until the sardine populations plunged and the industry went bust in the early 1950's. Today, squid is the bay's biggest fishery, and tourism is Cannery Row's major industry."
