Museum Memories

One of the earliest floating canneries in Prince William Sound was brought in for the crab harvest. To prepare the crab for market, the meat was forced from the shell by jets of water. Workers would break the ends of the shell and push the meat against the water jet shaking it free to create piles and piles of delicious goodness. This photo came from the archives and collections of the Cordova Historical Society.
