Road Trip: Pacific Coast Highway 2005 (3)

"Cannery Row in Monterey in California is a poem, a stink, a grating noise, a quality of light, a tone, a habit, a nostalgia, a dream. Cannery Row is the gathered and scattered, tin and iron and rust and splintered wood, chipped pavement and weedy lots and junk heaps, sardine canneries of corrugated iron, honky tonks, restaurants and whore houses, and little crowded groceries, and laboratories and flophouses." -John Steinbeck in his novel, "Cannery Row"

July 15, 2005 - Monterey's industrial past has given way to multi-million dollar homes, huge SUVs and expansive golf courses. Today, instead of the fish being filleted at a cannery they are on display at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Photos and text copyright by Sam Antonio.
