A harvest season scene
During harvest season in the early 1900s, farmers and shippers often stopped to photograph the women fruit packers posing with their great bunches of tokay grapes. Here, these unidentified women are kneeling behind two filled Earl Fruit Company shipping crates and the larger field box in the middle. Pickers would load the larger lug boxes in the fields and bring them to the packing sheds, where the women took out the bunches, clipped the bad berries out and laid the grapes into the smaller crates for shipping to the markets.
