Urban – 52 Project

The San Dimas Lemon Association packing house was considered the largest in the world in the early 1900s.  It was also the first packing house to have refrigerated storage, to use automatic box making machines, and to stamp the lemons with “Sunkist”.  Another fun feature of the packing house was the lemon crate labels that they used, which included dogs to advertise the fruit.

In recognition of its history, the city has dedicated a few walls to the lemon crate labels.  Here are two with Xavi posing in the foreground.Urban-52 Project-1Urban-52 Project-2Next up in the project circle is Barking Lab Studio, New Jersey dog photography.  Check out the fun idea Alicia Kapheim had with this week’s urban theme.

52 Weeks Project:  The 52 Weeks Project (aka Project 52) group consists of professional pet photographers – all members of the Beautiful Beasties Network – that post themed photos on their blog for each week of the year.  Photos post every Friday.
