- Details: This is such a beautiful label, the work that went into that view of Broadway in New York City must have taken months! As beautiful and red and juicy as the tomato looks, this label is all about Broadway. The majestic skyscrapers of the day, the old fashioned cars, how many of these buildings are still there, and how many are recognizable if there? The attention to detail is amazing considering there were no computer graphics back then, and the gilding adds a very nice finish. It would take a craftsman 3 to 4 months to make the plates to produce a label like this. It is a stone lithograph image. It is printed: Tibbitts-Hewitt Grocery Co., Distributors, St. Louis, MO.” This label is unused old factory stock acquired from a long time label dealer on the west coast. It’s rare to run into can labels this old in this condition, definitely suitable for framing, and recommended to maintain this condition.
