Loading the Water Wagon
Photographic print in an album. Wesley ?, Wayne O. and Wayne Turner load the water container into a horse-drawn wooden wagon in preparation for watering crops. They work to fill the container from a steam. The wagon is on top of a wooden bridge over the stream. A gaggle of geese stands near the back of the wagon. This took place on the Turner Farm in LaFayette, New York. Handwritten on the back of the photograph is, "Loading the Water-Wagon/July 1949/Wesley, Dad, Wayne." 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."
