Apples galore • Apples galore

This photo from circa 1880 shows a bountiful apple harvest in Waynesboro, Virginia, at the Rose Cliff Fruit Farm. According to the legend printed on the barrel ends, these apples are of the York Imperial variety, apparently an excellent choice for cooking. Sadly, this orchard was sold in 1927, and houses were built on the land. Photo Credit: Library of Congress/Corbis/VCG via Getty Images
