It looked like years worth atleast. Season three will hopefully clue us in on pre-crash happenings.
and to think they did it all for nothing!

i think the people in the pearl found that pile of cannisters and knew they had just wasted years doing it so they abandoned that hatch.

HAHAHA!!  That's a great point, Amazon.  I'm guessing there is a writer oversight on this one and not that it is a clue, but a great point nonetheless...

Actually, the tube Jack picked up had Locke's Lockdown map on it; this was to let us know that not all of the books or observations that were there were old.  It was current.  It was a big tube to nowhere.

Actually Des it was Sawyer who picked it up and it was loose and not in a tube. Just proves the tube system still works but not still in use?

GJ exactly.  I remember when Locke first put the copy of the map into the vacuum system and sent it up I thought "ut oh....now someone's going to know he's not only there, but that he's got a map of the hatch system," but in LTDA I realized that scene was to let us know the vacuum system works, is operational, that the huge pile of tubes is relatively current, and came from the Pearl.  It was a pretty effective way to establish all of those points with just one scene--clever writing.
