Cannery Workers, Eastport, Maine

Here are the children (and a few adults) whose descendants I have contacted, or about whom I have found significant information. Click on each photo to see an enlarged photo and the full captions. The caption directly under each enlarged photo is mine, based on what I have learned. Below that, you will see Hine's own caption (in italics), as published by the Library of Congress or other sources. You will note many examples of where my research has resulted in name corrections, or in the discovery of names of persons only partially identified, or not indentified at all by Hine. In most cases, I have posted full stories, which often include interviews with descendants and family photos of the children as adults. For others, I am still gathering information. These pages will be updated frequently.

Watch Eastport's Last Sardine, an excellent short film about the sardine industry in Eastport. It includes many of the Lewis Hine photos. The film was produced by the Maine Public Broadcasting Network, and is about 12 minutes long. Click the link and scroll down the list of films until you find it.
