Cannery Row:
The History of John Steinbeck's
Old Ocean View Avenue
by Michael Kenneth Hemp

See Cannery Row as it really was through archive photos
of professional Monterey photographers.
This book also serves as an indispensable companion reference to all of John Steinbeck's
Cannery Row literature: "Cannery Row" (1945), "Sweet Thursday" (1954), and
"Log From The Sea of Cortez" (1951).
       124 archival photos from the Pat Hathaway Historical Photo Collection of California
Views illustrate the evolution of the Monterey Peninsula from its earliest inhabitants to
the socio-economic disaster following the disappearance of the once "inexhaustible"
supply of sardines.

Find the real "Old Row" and Steinbeck literary sites in today's busy tourist district.
With this book's complete and accurate site index and detailed map of Cannery Row's
historic district, you can locate historic and Steinbeck sites, many of which appear in the
124 archival photos in the book. The authoritative information in this unique history and
guidebook are the result of over six years of intense oral histories conducted in the 1980s
by researcher and author Michael K. Hemp with the Row's surviving cannery workers,
business people, friends and relatives of John Steinbeck and his closest friend and mentor,
pioneering marine biologist Ed "Doc" Ricketts.
