Back in the days of our grandparents and their parents, people did their produce-shopping at markets that were more like a farmer's market than today's self-service supermarkets. The fruit and vegetables would be displayed in their shipping crates somewhere near the railroad tracks, probably under a big shed. Each crate would have a label (up to a foot square) showing the name of the packer, and a colorful design to differentiate the brand — an early form of point-of-sale advertising.
