The Retired School Bus
Photographic print in an album. A young woman, possibly Joyce Ogden sits in the back of the small school bus used on the Turner farm to transport produce to market. The bus, at this time, was retired from service and given to a camp for use. The family dog, Fritzi sits on the ground nearby. 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."
