Cannery Row

by John Steinbeck

Cannery Row Chapter 5 Summary

  • Doc's lab, Western Biological, is right across from the vacant lot. (Keeping a mental map?)
  • The lab has all kinds of sea life and other animals, even babies in jars.
  • Despite the babies in jars, everyone in Cannery Row likes to hang out there. Doc himself is a great guy who's always introducing people to poems and music.
