While postcards were originally intended to serve as souvenirs and keepsakes, now postcards help depict our history. The collection includes postcards from the early 1900s through 1960s. This collection also chronicles the arrival of the railroad in Florida, packing houses, fruit stands, and how development has impacted the citrus community throughout the past century.
The Citrus Crate Label Collection at Florida Southern College contains digitized labels from the Florida Citrus Hall of Fame and other sources. Used primarily in the 1920s-1950s, these colorful labels were both artistic and useful as a tool in the citrus industry. View these colorful, creative and useful marketing pieces. They welcome new label submissions.

With Florida Southern College located since 1922 on the site of a former orange grove, the connection to the citrus industry has provided a strong presence on campus. The relationship was further strengthened with the formation of the FSC Citrus Institute in 1947, which provided training and education to future leaders in the field.
