Sourisseau News: Fruit Labels in the Valley of Heart's Delight

The latest edition of the Sourisseau News provides a looks at historic fruit labels going back to the late 1800s. It would be nice to have some more murals honoring these like the one we have across the street from the San Pedro Square Market. Completely unrelated, but did you know the Fruit Cocktail was invented in San Jose?

Our January Sourisseau News video, sponsored by Linda L. Lester, helps us to forget the Winter Solstice and the icy north wind that whistles outside our windows. Instead, we get to languish in artful visions of the Valley of Heart's Delight— as preserved on the colorful labels which adorned the wood fruit crates and cans that shipped our bounty near and far!
