Robert Pendley Icy Straits Cannery Video

Filmed circa 1950s by Robert Pendley who was a mechanic at Icy Straits Salmon Packing Company for fifteen seasons.

Robert Pendley's daughters gave Johan Dybdahl the 16 millimeter film which was transferred to disk and then digitized. Dybdahl grew up at the cannery due to his father being a fishing tender captain and cannery watchman, he is now Director of Special Projects at Icy Strait Point. Pendley's daughters never knew where it was that their father went to work but when they heard about Icy Strait Point they all planned a trip together in 2006. That is how  Dybdahl was able to meet them and get this great historical film. There were three sisters who all came together. A couple years later two of them came back.
