California Raisins

“The San Joaquin Valley is the ‘Raisin Basket’ of the world, producing over one half of the total world’s supply. After two or three weeks of drying in the sun, these grapes will become delicious raisins.” I never did care for raisins. I mean, you’ve already got grapes; why go out of your way to make them dry and chewy?

This is a modern “Colorscope Photo Prints” card, published by Scope Enterprises of California; the photo is by Arnold and Carole Compolongo.

    I just saw your picture on the Postcrossing site as the latest supporter.

    When I saw the title to this post, I thought it would be about the California Raisins characters.

  2. I had let my Postcrossing Supporter badge lapse; it was time. I still have my doubts about this picture. California Raisins? I’ve seen the real ones on TV!

    I”m trying to reach Arnold and Carole Compolongo. I’m working on a dissertation at Pacifica Graduate Institute and would like to use one of their photos in my work. Do you know how I can reach them for permission.

    Thank you,
    Linda Quinn
