Joyce Turner with a Load of Beans
Photographic print in an album. Joyce Turner drives the family's Allis Chalmers tractor hitched to a palette of beans in bushel baskets. The tractor and crop are parked to the side of the house. The school bus used to deliver the crops to market is in front of the tractor (to the left). Handwritten on the back of the print is, "Joyce and a load of beans/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."
