Sitting on the Wagon
Photographic print in an album. A young girl, holding vines of peas, sits on top of an upside down bushel basket on a wagon. A basket full of harvested peas is on her right. She is on the Turner Farm in LaFayette, New York. On the back of the print is handwritten, "Jennie Washburn/1952." 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."
