Stacks of Peas

Filed under: Item of the Day — Jason Onerheim @ 12:01 am

A photograph of workmen stacking boxes of Green Giant peas in February, 1940. Interestingly, the company wasn’t named Green Giant until 1950. It took its name from these peas (which were originally called Prince of Wales).

This image forms part of our Minneapolis and St. Paul Newspaper Negative collection. Additional photographs in this series may be available in the library, please view the finding aid here.
