Tomatoes Crate Label

Description (Brief)
Labels are an important marketing device. They often go beyond merely identifying contents and are designed to help establish brand distinction and generate customer loyalty for a largely interchangeable product.
This crate label is for El Tejon brand Mexican tomatoes. The tomatoes were grown and packed by the Seicho Company of Verdura, Sinaloa, Mexico in the beginning of the 20th century.
