California Illustrated No.1 Print

“The Vacaville Early Fruit District”

The fruit-growing potential of the valleys around Vacaville was beginning to be fully appreciated when California Illustrated No. 1 – The Vacaville Early Fruit District was published in 1888. The booklet featured full-color printing plates of all aspects of the fruit-growing industry — from growing, picking, packing, drying and transporting the fresh and dried fruits — all meticulously drawn from photographs. The author, Professor Edward Wickson from the University of California, and the photographer, William R Nutting, were proud of their accuracy, offering copies of the photos that could be compared with the plates.
