This advertising collectible represents the early days before Silicon Valley. The vintage California Tomato Fruit Crate Label shown here was rescued from a fruit packing shed in San Jose, California, in the 1960's just as the packinghouse was being torn down. The produce box labels saved at the time were quite old and had been stuffed into an old leather suitcase and shuffled off to an unused corner of the fruit packing shed.  The packing house came down within the week.
