Caption aerial of north Fidalgo - canneries
Description Photo is a part of a series taken by "Bower and Brady." This view looks at the Anacortes waterfront on Guemes Channel from the foot of Q Avenue to H Avenue. Excellent view of this area. At lower edge of photo, under the work, "Anacortes" is the City Float -- a haven for small boats prior to the Can Sante Boat Haven being constructed in 1930. Next is Ocean Dock and the Taylor Hotel at the foot of Commercial Avenue, followed by Curtis Dock at the foot of O Avenue. Note the train tracks that looped through northern Anacortes during this time; the east-west street at the foot of Commercial was once known as "Railroad Avenue." A long line of canneries is visible along Guemes Channel: Northwestern Cannery (foot of M Avenue), Crest Canning Company (foot of L Avenue), Matheson Fisheries (foot of K Avenue), Apex Cannery (foot of J Avenue), and Pacific American Fisheries (foot of I Avenue). Note the Huntoon Building at the southeast corner of 6th and I.

This photograph can be found in the ANACORTES AMERICAN on December 16, 1926.
