Photographic print in an album. Two teenage boys play basketball together on the farm of Wayne O. and Marion Turner in LaFayette, Onondaga County, New York. They both wear gloves and heavy sweatshirts or overshirts. On the back of the photograph is handwritten, "Dickie and Wayne/March 1949." The farm was in operation from 1945-1956 at RD 1, LaFayette, New York. It was first a chicken farm and then a vegetable truck farm. The Turner's sold produce at the Syracuse Regional Market during that time. After the farm stopped operating, the barn was re-modeled into The Syracuse Motel and part of the farm was sold to the Jewish Federation of Syracuse and made into "Camp Fren-Le."
