★ Guide to Cannery Row & The Waterfront ★
This comprehensive "Then and Now" tour of John Steinbeck's Cannery Row and its Monterey Waterfront contains hundreds of archival photos of exactly what the Old Row was like when John Steinbeck stood where you do as he populated this world-famous stage with real people and places in his 1945 classic, "Cannery Row." Take a tour or roam freely in Monterey's world-famous canning district, discovering its history, its Steinbeck locations, its folklore, its secrets, and its services — with exclusive images and brief commentary on the significance of each by Cannery Row's career historian. Whether standing on the street with iPhone in hand or exploring the Old Row for a Steinbeck book report with an iPad from anywhere, there is no closer way to being here than with this iPhone app.
This app is actually three tours in one. First is the site-by-site tour of Cannery Row and Waterfront history: the stage for John Steinbeck. The second is a tour of the actual and fictional sites used in John Steinbeck's 1945 novel, "Cannery Row," indicated by an icon of his book "Cannery Row." And lastly, integrated with the first two tours is access to essential commercial services on Cannery Row: where to eat, what to see, where to shop or where to stay—and how to get the most out of a trip to Cannery Row, or seeing it all from wherever you are with this app.
The vast majority of the archival photography for this history of Cannery Row and this app is from one incredible source: the Pat Hathaway Collection, 469 Pacific Street, Monterey, CA 93940. (831) 373-3811. www.caviews.com
This comprehensive app includes the entire Monterey Waterfont from Pacific Grove's American Tin Cannery Outlets to Monterey Bay Kayaks on Del Monte Beach! We hope you enjoy using it to help make your Cannery Row and Monterey Waterfront experience a memorable one.

I found the app very nicely put together. Lots of "then and now" photos with some good information on the history of Monterey's sardine fishery and associated industries. The app ties locations to Steinbeck's book without making it too analytical or touristy. A good starting point for history buffs and anyone considering Monterey for a vacation. I would have scored it a five but I think it needs just a few more links.
