Description: A truck filled with Girl Guides drives to a strawbery patch on the farm of Reuben and Margaret Lush. During the First World War, many farms depended on women and youth to take on the work left behind by men who had enlisted. The Lush's market gardening business began when Reuben and his brother Cuthbert bought land in Clarkson, pt. lot 31, conc. 3. Reuben and Margaret (Maggie) took over the business and in 1917 they opened one of the first roadside fruit and vegetable stands in Ontario. Description as of May 2017.
