Opening day of the Monterey Bay Aquarium on Cannery Row on the site of the old Hovden Cannery.
The Monterey Bay Aquarium is probably the most historically important event to have happened in the Monterey Bay and its environs in the last twenty years.

Mr. Hathaway was one of only a few photographers allowed to go on site during the construction of the aquarium and has a complete collection documenting the construction of the aquarium from start to finish.
