The Jay T. Last Collection of California Citrus Box Labels consists of approximately 1000 lithographed labels created to identify
brand names and packing locations on wooden crates of oranges, lemons and grapefruit. The majority of labels were printed
by Los Angeles and San Francisco lithographers for growers, packers and distributors in southern California. Collection dates
range from 1880 through 1960.
