Description: 
Photographic print in an album. View of the barn on the Turner Farm remodeled into the "South Syracuse Motel" after Wayne O. and Marion Turner went out of the farming/produce business. Lawn chairs are in front of the motel and two people, a man and woman sit in them. On the back of the print is handwritten in different colored ink,"Our South Syracuse Motel built by us in the 1950's LaFayette, N.Y./Don't know if you ever saw this before or not./I will send you a better picture/Did I send you the log house in Port Jarvis?" 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."
