Description

This black and white image features the produce stand for "Goodnight Bros Mountain Grown Produce." A large, hand painted sign in the center of scene reads "Goodnight Bros packers and shippers of Mountain Grown Produce." A large black and white striped curtain hangs behind the sign, blocking the cinder-block wall. Several advertisements for Royster "field tested seeds and fertilizers" appear around the space. Several sacks of Royster "Guano" fertilizer sit on the floor next to the produce buckets. One of the bags is angled towards the camera, making the printed list of ingredients in the fertilizer visible. The front of the bag reads, "{...} Guarenteed Analysis," "{...} {...} Nitrogen," "{...} phos acid," "{...} potash," "calcium oxide," "sulphur," "magnesium oxide," and "potential acid forming neutral." The image shows large "Kennebec" potatoes, onions, green beans, several spices or seeds, cabbage, apples, and "sequoia" potatoes.
