list of fruit crate label cross stitch patterns

In the late 1800's and first half of 1900's, fruit from California started to be shipped nationally on the new tran-continental railroad. To advertise the products, many farmers and growing groups had striking graphic designs created to label the wooden boxes that were used to ship the produce.

I like these old designs, all made in California, and I have made cross stitch patterns out of several and I have listed them below
