Joyce Bringing in the Crop
Photographic print in an album. Joyce Turner drives the family's Allis-Chalmers tractor from the field with a load of beans in bushel baskets. The school bus used to deliver crops to the Farmer's Market is in front of the tractor. Wayne O. and Marion Turner stand in the background with dog Dewey. A field of vegetables is behind them. Handwritten on the back of the print is, "Joyce the tractor-driver/1950?." 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."
