Fruit Crate Labels Wall Calendar: At the end of the 19th century, refrigerated railroad cars made long distance shipping of perishable produce possible. Labels were created so shippers and merchants could more easily identify what was in the crates. They also helped create brand recognition. These colorful paper labels became lively mobile advertisements. In the late 1950's labels were no longer used because pre-printed boxes replaced wooden crates. Today, these labels are highly collectible. This calendar features selections from the extensive collections at the Smithsonian Institution. There are sections at the back of the calendar to record emergency contact information and birthdays/anniversaries and a full-page 3-year at-a-glance. Earth friendly, printed with soya-based inks on FSC certified paper. ISBN: 1554565693 EAN: 9781554565696
