Description Canneries, Ship Harbor
02/26/2013, information from Jacqueline Haddon-Bohn: "The Indians [Native Americans] from all over ... would congregate here at Ship Harbor, for Potlatches, before the cannery was in existance.

Ship Harbor Cannery would hire Chinese workers. The Chinese in those days would keep to themselves. We have an old sign that hung in the Cannery that read in both English and Chinese, "No Opium Smoking".
