Historic photo: Sardine packers

Sep 09, 2017

This photograph is labeled “The Crew at Belfast Packing Co. 1945.” That year, sardine packers worked tirelessly for the war effort — 55 percent of their output was going to servicemen. They earned a top agricultural award from the U.S. Department of Agriculture for outstanding performance in the processing of food.
