This mural reproduces an old orange crate label (with the words "Former Home Of" added at the top) and is painted on the side of the building that used to house the packing company that used this label. The mural faces the railroad tracks and also Euclid Ave., the main thoroughfare in Upland.
Upland is one of a series of towns established by the Santa Fe Railway along its route from Santa Fe, New Mexico, to Los Angeles. This became a region of many large citrus groves, almost all of which are now gone, replaced by suburban sprawl.
