Some of the detail pictures of our journals are all the same as we are working on photographing the entire collection. The construction is identical except for the cover art and spine text.

*In the 1880s, railroads arrived in Southern California. The new rail system allowed California produce to be transported to markets throughout the United States. It was necessary to identify the type and origin of the produce, and thus the produce crate label was born.
Producers soon realized that the labels could be used for advertising as well as identifying the produce, and larger rectangular labels were developed.
From 1820 to 1920, the labels were based on advertising posters already in use and were produced using stone lithography. These labels are grouped into the Naturalism Art Period.
The more graphic labels that came later are grouped into the Commercial Art Period.
