Browns - 1939

This is an aerial view of Browns Farm - May 1939. The image is courtesy of http://www.pennpilot.psu.edu/. The farm is the large spot in the center of the frame. On the lower right would be Fairfield Avenue and St. Clair Road along with the houses off of St. Stephens Cemetery. Click on the picture to enlarge.
Wish this could be clearer - but this is the best I can get it. As you can see - Elmer and all his children had their hands full - running this large truck farm.
