Orange Crate Art

June 10, 2022

Jstor.org has a great article about the history and development of the art we all recognize from the sides of orange crates.

Soon after the first railcar of oranges came out of California in 1877, “orchardists and fruit associations across California were using brightly colored box labels to build an identity for their orchards and advertise their produce.”

Well worth the read, with many more examples of the art.
