Grape picking in Ohio   Save
Ohio Guide Photographs
Description: Photograph showing a group of workers picking grapes. At their feet can be seen baskets into which they pile the picked grapes. These filled baskets would be picked up and transported to a central storage and shipping area by the horses and wagon shown at the center of the photo. The worker's pay would depend on how many baskets they could fill, as they were generally paid a set amount per basket. Grapes were another important market crop for Ohio farmers during the Great Depression. View on Ohio Memory.
