The new 2009 Third Edition now has 200 archival photos—most newly scanned from original negs and earliest generation prints—that illustrate the rise of the Monterey Sardine fishing and canning industry, the literary legacy of John Steinbeck, and the ecological legacy of Ed "Doc" Ricketts in it.

New Third Edition 2009 of the classic 200 archival photo illustrated history of John Steinbeck's Cannery Row by its 30 year historian and author, President of the Cannery Row Foundation (2008-2009), Michael Kenneth hemp. More information at    


Cannery Row’s origins are a mixture of the rocky Monterey coastline and the toil and industry of the Orient. A Chinese fishing village, from which “China Point” derives its name, was established in the early 1850s and was devastated by fire in 1906.
Monterey’s first major canning operation had begun next to Fisherman’s Wharf when Booth’s sardine canning experiment was matched with the skill of Sicilian fishermen and “lampara” fishing techniques. Booth’s early development of sardine packing depended on innovative and inventive personnel, many of whom went on to own or operate other canneries, all of which were forced to locate away from the harbor, along a rocky stretch of coastline out toward the Chinatown near Pacific Grove.
