Sunset Fruit Shipment 1897 – In the News

From the Dallas Morning News, June 17, 1897

“Sunset, Montague Co., Tex., – There were shipped from this place yesterday 700 boxes of fruit and vegetables, being the largest shipment that has ever been made from this place, 500 boxes going to New Orleans, the other 200 boxes going to Colorado and other points west.”

I was aware of Sunset’s famous fruit stands in the 1930s and after, but had no idea they were known for the fruits of their labor as early as 1897.  Did you?
