Caco Squid Can Label

After Cannery Row, Monterey ran out of sardines in the late 1940s & 1950s they started canning squid at a ferocious rate. Today, squid is the biggest commercial catch in the Monterey bay. Here is a squid label from an earlier period. This label is from around 1910-1930. This is one of the oldest Monterey squid labels I have ever found. From time to time I'll post a squid label or two. It's sort of off-topic but squid is squid. If you want to see more squid labels go to
