Summary:
Reverse of photo says that this farm picture is of Leonard Wilder's farm near Ruskin. Taken (1912-1915). Wilder was engaged in sugar cane, cane grinding and syrup making. (Sugar cane was a popular early crop for early pioneers in South Hillsborough County.) In looking at the picture, it seems that this is the location of the grinding station (with the horse) and the cooking station (in the open hut.) The exact location of this farm is unknown, although most farms of this nature would have been south of the Little Manatee River.)
