Fruit crate labels (21)

Summary  Lambert Marketing Co. jumped to the next century to come up with this image of Sacramento as a "big city," though this fruit crate label circa 1930 probably had the "big apple" of New York in mind. Asparagus was and is a cash crop, and few places in the country boasted better harvests. An estimated acreage of agricultural commodities in Sacramento County in 1928 placed asparagus second, with 22,000 acres planted, far behind wheat at 45,000 acres, but just ahead of beans with 20,000 acres planted.
