The canning industry.





















When I saw this symbol up on the building I immediately thought about the canning industry.
That used to be BIG business here in Stavanger.

How times change, great capture.

Definitely makes me wonder what happened to cause the industry to shift away from Stavanger.

That's a beautiful detail! And such a lovely blue sky!

I guess canning is/was popular in areas close to the water.

So those really were Stavanger sardines I was eating all that time? :-)

This is a fine sign. If canning isn't happening much in Stavanger now, I wonder where it DOES happen.

A very nice relief, and I am wondering about what Jack just said...
