From the 1900s until 1950, fruit crate labels were made to stick on the crate and to differentiate the contents.
These images were originally designed by artists for labels on fruit boxes to indicate what was in it and where it came from.
The crates with these labels contained Sunkist oranges from the different regions of California.
When that use changed, many labels were thrown away. They are still being collected, however.
In 1920 the poster with litho print appeared, after the original design of the label.
After 1950 the advertising signs also appeared, after the original design.
These signs are a barn find and refer to the original labels from those regions.
Are still very decorative.
