Women employees, Farnsworth Fish Cannery, Brooklin

Contributed by an individual through Sedgwick-Brooklin Historical Society

A photo of some of the workers at the Farnsworth Fish Cannery in 1920. Packing the fish was considered women's work. No particular uniform was worn except caps to cover the hair and aprons, since packing fish was messy work.
