Rare Vintage 1900s Whittier Blue Lemons Wooden Crate Side Whittier Select Citrus Association. This is only a side from an original Blue Lemons wooden crate.
A little background on Whittier Citrus Association:
Whittier is located in Los Angeles County, about 12 miles southeast of the City of Los Angeles. By the 1890s the citrus industry was taking over and by 1901 the Whittier Citrus Association was formed and “Quaker Brand” citrus was known around the world. By 1906, 650 carloads of oranges and 250 carloads of lemons were shipped annually by rail.
This definitely is in vintage condition, expect some wood splits/cracks/chips and paper damage, label is readable, as pictured.
