A Taste of History

Another art show Dan and I saw recently was A Taste of History: The Story of Citrus Labels at the Santa Paula Art Museum. The exhibit had citrus crates and labels as well as vintage citrus packing items.

Here is part of a packing station with the tissue paper that was used to wrap the citrus fruit. The barrel in the back was for the powder used to make the crate label paste.

Here is vintage citrus crate on rollers used in the citrus fruit packing process.

This vintage citrus crate has its original label attached.

Some of the vintage crate labels for the different type of citrus fruit.
Old conveyer belt from the citrus fruit packing process.

The photos were taken by Dan.
