Photographer's Note

These pilings in the Fraser River are what is left of one of the many fish canneries operated by BC Packers, Ltd. Fish, particularly, salmon, was the greatest natural resource of the area for many year and canneries naturally became the main industry of the area as well. At the height of its business, BC Packers operated 8 canneries, almost all of which were built entirely on pilings. In 2001, the company packed itself way from the area.

The light at the far right was from the fishing boats at Steveston's wharf.
