Weeding a Field of Bean Plants
Photographic print in an album. Two women, likely Marion and Joyce Turner hoe weeds in a bush bean field on the Turner farm in LaFayette, Onondaga County, New York. Bare Mountain is in the background. 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."
