by Jana, Jerry (circa 1930, 1950s)

2 folders (0.2 linear feet)

This collection contains approximately 435 farm picker tickets (or "checks") from farms in Maryland, primarily on the Eastern Shore. The cardboard tickets/checks were given to crop pickers to turn in for payment and feature the farm name and, occasionally, the location. While most of the tickets were for berry pickers and other agricultural crops, there is one for crabs. Also included are four canning labels for Jack's Tomatoes (Preston, Maryland), Friel's White Sweet Corn (Queenstown, Maryland), Old Wye tomato juice packed by Friel (Queenstown, Maryland), and Friel's Tomatoes (Queenstown, Maryland).
