    Scope and Content

    The album contains 17 photographic prints taken of the George E. Hyde & Co. canning operations between 1915 and 1921. The album includes a panoramic view of the George E. Hyde & Co. works, with various buildings labeled. Other views show interiors of the cannery (with men and women at work) children at the day care center, peach-processing equipment, canning machinery, cans on the assembly line, box-making operations, labeling, the warehouse, fruit-cutting room, and related views. Also included are samples of labels for canned apricots, peaches, pears, and other fruits (some under the Sunnyside brand name.) The photographs are stamped with the company name and the album pages (as well as some of the photographs) bear handwritten captions that suggest an employee (perhaps Mr. Hyde himself?) assembled the album.
