Delta throwback: Wellington Cannery

The photograph shows men mending nets, canoes in the water, workers' huts and the cannery buildings in the distance.

The cannery was located at what is now the park and boat launch known as Wellington Point Park.

Located on River Road West, the park with vistas along the south arm of the Fraser River is often visited by kayakers and canoeists.
