Hovden Cannery, Cannery Row, Monterey Ca



An interest in architectural photography led me to a 4x5 camera in the 1970's. Although used for various architectural and scenic subjects around the Bay Area (it's really too cumbersome to travel very far with) in only one case did I make a thorough study of a particular subject: the ruins of the Hovden sardine cannery on Montery's cannery row.


The Entry




It was a magnificent and melancholy subject full of the ghosts of a different age. The building's fate was respectable - its boilers, smokestacks and architectural vocabluary were all resurrected in the Monterey Bay Aquarium now standing on its site.







More photos of the cannery may be seen here.
