Stripping Peas from the Vines
Photographic print in an album. Wayne O. and Marion Turner and their foster son Lenny pick peas from the vines on the Turner Farm in LaFayette, New York. The vines of peas are on the back of a horse-drawn wagon. Bushel baskets are on the wagon for collecting the peas and a stack of the baskets is on the left in reserve. On the back of the print is handwritten, "Picking Peas/Dad, Mom, Lenny." 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."
