Shelf number: 00220.
L-R: Ethel Lanier, Cleve Lanier, Louise Lanier (child), Lizzie Lanier, John Roberts (son in law) and Jim W. Lanier.
Accompanying note: "As recently as the 1940s the crop was considered so vital that schools in strawberry-producing areas operated on a different schedule from that of regular schools, so that children could [be] at home to help cultivate and pick the berries. The 'strawberry' schools were in session from Spring until about Christmas."
