Hoonah Cannery Aerial Photo 1948

From the air you can see cannery housing, a fuel tank and in the far top of the photo on the beach front are smoke houses owned by Hoonah families.
Cultural Narrative: 

The cannery worker housing shown was one of two rows, the second row of housing not yet built at the time this photo was taken. The houses were built on mounds, connected by trestles to keep the housing above water when water could rise to that level during high tides. When this photo was taken, the ground was much lower and has risen since due to glacial (isostatic) rebound. The fuel tank held bunker fuel that was used to operate the steam boiler located in the power house, which is still there.
