Crate Expectations: An Exhibit of Florida Citrus Crate Labels
Between the late 1800s and the 1960s, colorful paper labels decorated the ends of wooden crates that transported Florida citrus produce to northern markets. These labels not only identified the growers and advertised their product, but also promoted through positive images the “good life” in the Sunshine State. The labels in the exhibit are organized around themes such as history, Indian people, women, children, sports, and music.
Crate Expectations offers a nostalgic look at some of Florida’s most interesting citrus labels.
