1 photograph ; 7 x 10 in.
A group of laborers gather around peaches picked in an orchard operated under the aegis of the California Fruit Canners' Association. By 1915 around 200,000,000 cans of fruit were considered safer since they were sterilized, and the country developed a taste for canned rather than fresh fruit.
