Description: 
Photographic print in an album. View of three men on the Turner farm filling the water wagon for irrigating fields. A barrel is on the wagon to be filled with water from the stream. The wagon is drawn by a team of horses. They are stopped partially on a bridge over the stream. Two geese stand near the back of the wagon. The work is being done on the Turner Farm in LaFayette, New York. This photograph is part of an album of the Wayne O. and Marion Turner farm which 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."
