Haying Time on the Turner Farm
Photographic print in an album. Three boys sit on the ledge of the open barn door together on the farm of Wayne O. and Marion Turner in LaFayette, Onondaga County, New York. The boy on the left holds a hay fork in his hands. The barn door below them is open and hay spills out of the doorway. On the back of the photograph is handwritten, "Leonard, Wesley, Wayne in the barn door/June 1948/neg- 5A" 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."
