These are brief looks at facilities available for fishers in Oregon around 1930. Maps show harbors, fuel and oil stations, yacht clubs, small craft landings, small craft anchorages and drawbridges. Entries are brief. Here, for example, is the entry for the Umpqua River, “Gardiner and Reedsport are principal centers. Cold storage and fresh shipping of salmon and shad. Troll and gillnet salmon, gillnet shad, most of which are shipped fresh, either direct to markets or to other points for packing. Ice, oil, stores. Coast guard livesaving station. Bar impassable in rough weather.” (p.85) Includes maps of Astoria, Yaquina Bay and Coos Bay.
