Not all fish packing plants were at Center Harbor. The Mayo Sardine cannery was located at Naskeag Point, Brooklin, shown here in 1927.
It was owned by Alanson H. Mayo, and was in operation from 1902 to 1929.
"When we were kids, there were about four or five factories that were down there." (Interview with Edmund Williams, 7/20/95)
