Irrigating Fields on the Turner Farm
Photographic print in an album. Three men work to irrigate a field of produce on the Turner Farm in LaFayette, New York. One man, likely Wayne O. Turner waters the plants, while another man guides the hose from the back of the wagon. A third man drives the horse team drawing the water wagon. 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."
