FLASHBACK FRIDAY - turtle farm
The turtles would lay their eggs on the bank under these metal tins. After the eggs were laid the workers, who were mostly high school students would collect the eggs in little baskets that were soon after rinsed off in a Clorox bath to prevent salmonella. The eggs were stored in boxes in a room for several weeks before they hatched. Some are put back into the pond while other turtles were shipped over seas.
