Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Lug and Can Label collection consists of more than 4,000 lithographed labels created primarily for containers of oranges, lemons, and apples. The majority of the labels are from growers and distributors from California's Central Valley. The collection spans the years from circa 1890-1970. Also included is a small group of labels for canned goods.
This collection was constructed by the Special Collections Department from an accession of lug labels transferred by the Pomology Department. Labels are added to the collection as they are received.
