The three major fruits grown in the Santa Clara Valley - prunes, apricots, and peaches - are featured on this crate label for the Richmond-Chase Company in San Jose, California. Founded in 1919, by Elmer E. Chase and Edmund N. Richmond the Richmond-Chase Company operated as an independent cannery until 1958. The Richmond-Chase Company operated a 27-acre plant in San Jose and 21-acre plant in Stockton. Hundreds were employed at the peak of each season. In 1958 Richmond-Chase became a division of the California Canners and Growers, which closed in 1982.
