During fishing season in the early years its population multiplied tenfold and social life took on the quality of a boom-town, complete with gambling halls, opium dens and countless hook shops. Large populations of Indian, Chinese, Japanese and European workers gave it a uniquely ethnic atmosphere. Today its picturesque main street and nearly abandoned "Cannery Row" hint at a colourful past, a past well-known historian Duncan Stacey and writer Susan Stacey thoroughly document in this first-ever history of one of BC's most fascinating waterfront. communities."
