Description (Brief)
This shipping crate side contained tobacco from Middletown, Ohio manufactured by the P. Lorillard Company during the late 19th century. The wooden crate side features an extensive block of text that claims that the “manufacturer of this tobacco has complied with all the requirements of law” and warns against re-using to crate to ship tobacco.
