Historical photos: Fishing fleet and the 'red' king

Numerous fishing boats are tied up in this historical photo next to the pilings of Juneau’s wharf in the early 1900s. In the background, the Alaska-Juneau Mine can be seen. Also pictured is a “34-pound red king salmon” which is shown unpacked after being shipped from the Juneau Cold Storage Co. to the San Juan Fishing & Packaging Co., in Seattle, Wash. on April 1, 1929.
