Contributed by Norridgewock Historical Society

The label shows two ears of yellow corn and specifies "fancy quality."

The Jewett Brand states that corn starch was added to ensure smoothness. Contents are one pound of Fancy Maine Cream Style Golden Corn packed by G.S. and F.E. Jewett, Norridgewock, Maine, USA.

The canning factory was on Perkins Street and processed and canned both corn and string beans. The shop on the corner by the plant was used to make wooden boxes and crates.
