One of a series of 23 photographs depicting the activities of the California Fruit Growers Exchange.

Provenance: Received on June 2, 1933 from the California Fruit Growers Exchange, Box 530, Station C, Los Angeles, California. "Sunkist Photo" stamp.

Inscription: On verso of image: "The oranges come from the grading belts along these diverging rollers and drop into the proper bins according to their sizes.

Covers are now placed on the boxes and they are ready for the trip to far off markets."
