Magnolia Brand Georgia Plum Crate Label
This Magnolia Brand Plum Crate Label measures 8” Wide x 2.6” High and is from the 1930s. The label features a beautiful peach blossom on one side and fresh picked plum on the other side. The fruit for this mint condition label was grown and packed by William J. and E. Clyde Wilson of Fort Valley, Georgia.
The town of Fort Valley is located in Peach County, Georgia just 90 miles south of Atlanta. The city was chartered in 1856, but the origin of the town's name is unclear. One story claims that it was named "Fox Valley" but its founder’s (James Everett) hand writing was misread by post office officials in Washington, D.C., as "Fort Valley." Fort Valley became the center of Georgia’s peach industry. By 1921, one third of the peaches shipped from Georgia were from Fort Valley. Today, more than half of Georgia’s peaches come from Peach County. So its not often you see a plum label.
