Caption interior of Porter Cannery
Description View of men in interior of Porter Cannery. The Porter Cannery was the former Rosario Straits Packing Company, purchased by Porter in 1905 [See 7/2/0/1905, ANACORTES AMERICAN]. In 1911, when Robinson moved to the Anacortes Creamery and Produce site in preparation for building its new plant at the foot of Erie Avenue, Porter purchased the Robinson Cannery. [See 9/7/1911, ANACORTES AMERICAN]. Porter Fish Company was sold in 1915; cannery was owned by Northwestern Fisheries by 1922. Fred Fulton is on the right; more about Fulton in WF 0401. Chinese workers appear to be in this view as well.
