The History of Fruit Crate Labels and Can Labels

I'm going to break this into time periods and give a few observations on what was going on at the time and how fruit crate labels and canned food labels fit in, and changed with the times. Keep in mind that labels were made to be pasted on crates, not framed or collected. Their purpose was two fold, first to identify what was in the box and secondly to assign responsibility. When you put your label on a box you are putting your name and if the product in the box is good your label gets recognized as a good brand, or the opposite if you ship poor quality.
