Tinned rabbit label

The top label is from a tin of curried rabbit, produced about 1900 under the Trapped Rabbit brand. Before the freezing industry began, several companies set up factories to preserve and can rabbits for export. None were very profitable, as there was little demand for the product in Britain.
