LITTLE HISTORY ON ORANGE CRATES –
Wooden crates were used from the late 1800s until the 1950s when they were replaced by cardboard boxes.
– In the beginning the name of the packing house and the grade of the orange packed inside was stenciled on each crate. Although this identification was sufficient, it was not especially attractive and had little appeal for the wholesalers who bought the oranges.
– As a result a colorful 10 x11 inch label was designed to attract attention and promote the product. Designed by commercial artists, most of these labels were produced in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
