Dominator -- August 1, 2012

This Dominator Brand tomato crate label features an attacking fighter plane.  From the general shape and the fire flaring from the propellor hub, I guess it is supposed to be a Bell P-39 Airacobra.  It was part of a new display of fruit crate labels which we saw when we visited the California State Railroad Museum in July. 

I was sad to learn that Gore Vidal had died.  He had a gift with words, and wasn't afraid to criticize people for abusing them.  I avoided his historical novels.  They would get me upset.  Of course, that was part of the purpose.
