Summary
The imaginative image used on the back cover of this set of Sacramento area postcards shows a nude child sitting in a gold pan biting into an unpeeled orange. Oranges tastefully cover the child's lower body while camellia blooms blossom in the background. This cameo is centered and hung in the midst of a peach orchard. What on Earth must people have thought about the Sacramento area with a picture like that as an enticement?
