Cannery Row, 1954
Canneries on Cannery Row being dismantled on the south end where El Torito’s Restaurant is currently located. With the sardines slowly in decline in the mid-fifties this was the first sign that Cannery Row and the commercial fishing was in for a big change. Canneries that were canning squid were able to last longer as a viable business. The Hovden Cannery was one of the last canneries to exist on Cannery Row.
