An orange picker at work in the 1940’s.  Ponce de Leon is credited with most likely planting the first orange trees around St. Augustine, Florida in the early to mid 1500’s.  Citrus has been commercially grown in Florida since the early 1800’s with North Florida along the St. Johns River being the early hub of Florida’s citrus business.  This photo was most likely taken in Central Florida during Loyd Sandgren’s time working for the Florida State Advertising Commission in Tallahassee, FL around 1946.
