Santa Barbara. Johnston Fruit. Copyright 1912, but published ca. 1950s?
Vintage color fruit crate label, 9 x 12 1/2 inches, unused, very good condition. This map of North and Central America is a fun piece of cartographic ephemera. It shows a map of the United States and Central America with distribution routes fanning out from the Panama Canal. At right two branches with lemons and flowers identify the product. Fruit crate labels were designed specifically to attract the attention of the potential customer, and are notable for their great graphics. Item #40604
