This interior photograph of the H.F. Webb Corn Shop illustrates the volume of canned corn production in Leeds.
Some of the cans went to market under Webb's own name; the rest went to new grocery chains like First National and A & P, which slapped on their own labels with "Maine Quality Sweet Corn."
