At the end of the nineteenth century, when Oregon's salmon canning industry was in its prime, the canneries along the Columbia River used colorful labels to promoted their own brands of canned salmon. With twenty-nine canneries operating in 1889, competition was extensive and the product was not unique, at least along the Lower Columbia River. The majority of the cannery labels date from 1880 to 1890 and were used by companies in Astoria. Other labels come from canneries in Coos County, Portland, Tillamook, Celilo in Wasco County and Anacortes, Washington.
