Apple 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 Trustworthee brand apple crate label was used by the American Fruit Growers Inc. of Wenatchee, Washington during the early 20th century. The lithographed label was produced by the Western Lithograph Company of Los Angeles, California. The plain label has an orange background with a blue frame, with black text.
