Vitamin Yams February 05 2010

New in our gallery and store: This fruit crate label was used on Vitamin Louisiana Yams, c. 1960: "Vitamin Brand Louisiana Yams. Sweet Potatoes. 50 lbs. net. Packed for Friedman & Broussard. Lafayette, LA. Produce of U.S.A. Kiln Dried. U.S. No. 1." Crate labels were a frequent means of marketing fruit and vegetable packer brands at the turn of the century.
