Carlisle Cannery 121 years old!

One the many Canneries on the North Coast we will visit is the old Carlisle Cannery at the mouth of the Skeena River. It was one of the first Canneries to be built outside of the protected waters of the Skeena River. This Cannery was built in 1895 and ceased operations in 1950.  The cannery produced a high of 72 000 cases in 1941.  When seeing photos from the past of Carlisle Cannery was a bustling place that sprawled across the shore and out onto the ocean with hundreds of pilings.  When heading back now to look at a 120 year old cannery there does not seem to be much left but when  you start to explore on shore it is amazing what remains in the mud amongst the pilings and in the forest where rows of houses once stood.   Here are a few then and now photos.
