Swimming in the Creek
Photographic print in an album. Three members of the Turner family enjoy a swim in the creek near their farm in LaFayette, New York. Handwritten on the back of the photograph is, "Enjoying the Creek/Wayne (on bank), Leonard, Joyce/August 1949." 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."
