Did you know that crab feeds have been going on in Charleston for at least 53 years?  Hannah Cooney of Coos Historical and Maritime Museum sent us these photos from the January 1960 and 1961 seasons of the ‘Charleston Crab Feeds’ taken by Victor West, a native to the Coos Bay area and donor of possibly the largest maritime and Coos County history photographic collection in the Northwestern United States.
