Back when Hovden Cannery was a functioning sardine cannery in the early 1900s, fishing boats would occasionally bring in a unique or odd specimen. A shelf of such specimens now rests in the area of the old cannery that is now part of the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Here, we show a preserved squid's tentacles that were mentioned in an old newspaper clipping. This image was shot (appropriately) with a fisheye lens. Hovden Cannery was the last to close on Cannery Row, and closed in 1973.
