A collection of the records from 1893 to 1947 for the San Antonio Fruit Exchange, Pomona, California.
The San Antonio Fruit Exchange was founded in 1893 in Pomona, California, as a cooperative group of local citrus growers and distributors. The exchange contained an assortment of southern California growers whose fruit was sold at standardized prices to both local and national entities. The group also participated in the larger collective fruit agencies of the period such as the California Fruit Growers Exchange and the Southern California Fruit Exchange. On its own, and as part of the larger fruit agencies, the group sought to combine high quality fruit at controlled prices throughout the United States and eventually into parts of Europe.
