Vegetables 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 20 Squares brand vegetable crate label was used by the Cutler Growers Exchange of Cutler California during the early 20th century. The lithographed label has a blue background with illustrations of assorted vegetables on the right.
