This is an original 1939 halftone print of men working at the Birds Eye plant in Boston, Massachusetts. The caption writes, "Last step before wrapping red-perch fillets at Birds Eye's plant in Boston is candling by electric light to spot 'blisters' (caused by parasites) that may be below the surface." The company is currently owned by Pinnacle Foods, and is credited with the fast freezing process. Photography by Richard Carver Wood.
