Most early views of Rooster Rock are from the river side. This glass negative by Jesse Meiser captures the view from the bluffs. Recreated from the original negative, prints are very detailed and look great in larger sizes. This is demonstrated by a look at Detail View 2, showing the back side of the Rooster Rock Cannery. The cannery was eventually forced to move across the river to Ellsworth, Washington, due to the constant silting of the bay.
