Summary
It's Del Monte Early Garden Peas tonight! Moving from field, to cannery, to table, this Prelinger Archives film offers a peek inside the Del Monte pea processing operation, whose end result is the "succulent green gems" that are served up with pride by the American housewife. As much a window into life in the pre-World War II suburbs as it is a time capsule of Depression-era factory farming.
