Slocum-Bergren Company coffee crate

Wooden crate used to ship 50 pounds of Peaberry No. 3 brand coffee.  The coffee was retailed by Slocum-Bergren Company of Minneapolis and shipped to the Dakon/Toteshek store, at Sherman Station, on the Luce Line interurban.  Slocum-Bergren warehouse was the site of a violent confrontation between police and picketers during the Minneapolis truckers’ strike of 1934.
