Black and white photograph. An older African American man in suspenders and wearing a hat stands in a garden and holds a white bucket in the crook of his left arm. The plants appear to be in the squash family. In the background is the mill.
"Wish I had his name written, retired elderly fellow who lived below 8th Ave. near Homestead Works Amity gate, and found the soil between the tracks fertile enough to grow Okra. He was from the south and had worked here in the mill. No one bothered his garden there, not even the rail traffic."
