(Documentary Artifact): One b/w lantern slide of strips of squash drying from lines hanging from timber posts of a ramada. A woman sits near the doorway of a house. See also OP 13029-428; according to Davis’ notes on the verso of this print: ‘Very often a whole squash will be dried in one long strip + when cured, will be wound + tied up in a great hank + laid away for future food. It is cut up in small pieces + boiled in an olla.’
