"Cannery Row is the waterfront street in the New Monterey section of Monterey, California," according to Wikipedia. "It is the site of a number of now-defunct sardine canning factories. The last cannery closed in 1973. The street name, formerly a nickname for Ocean View Avenue, became official in January 1958 to honor John Steinbeck and his well-known novel Cannery Row. In the novel's opening sentence, Steinbeck described the street as 'a poem, a stink, a grating noise, a quality of light, a tone, a habit, a nostalgia, a dream.'"
(Please note that these photos were taken. as I was experimenting with digital cameras. I used a consumer-grade DSLR and not my pro SLR gear, so while the photos may be enlarged, they will not enlarge to a huge size.)
