Additional Details:
The light area shows newly-set vines which send out runners making a matted velvet covering as shown in the dark area. On the right is a reservoir to flood the plantation for protection against frosts. Great progress has been made in the cranberry industry since the Indians taught the Pilgrims the use of this delicious fruit. Now the growers take pride in vine-ripening their berries until mellow and juicy, then preserving them in cans by a particular process in nearby plants so that today their famous Ocean Spray Brand is purchased every day in the year in all the world
