This HARVESTER Brand of Cape Cod Cranberries is from Colley Cranberry Co. Wareham, Mass. Measures 11 3/4" X 8" This authentic old Cranberry box label is showing 40 OR MORE African American harvesters. I love this! The guy in front is showing ATTITUDE toward the camera! This Real Photograph vintage cranberry fruitt crate label is a great ethnic, African American historical document. Clothing styles, hats, shawls etc. all are shown actually in use (One picker seems to have an Arab style head-dress draped over his back for sun and grime protection.) Also, of note, there is a large iron wheeled wheelbarrowloaded with 3 filled wooden cranberry boxes; two are similar while the third seems wider and not so tall. Could these be differing quality grade of fruit? Note: We have a new computer and haven't figured out how to combine two images. This label is complete; none of it is cut off. I will describe any missing lettering etc. Very good condition; tiny edge damage. Rare File.
