Wayne O. Turner Picking Beans
Photographic print in an album. Portrait of Wayne O. Turner in a field of bush beans picking the crop. In front of him is a bushel basket filled with the variety of Cherokee Beans. Handwritten on the back of the print is, "Daddy and the Cherokee Beans." 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."
