Video of the Bajor Farm Zoom Talk

Here's the bare-bones video of the Zoom talk featuring two sisters from Allendale talking about growing up next to their grandparents' farm in Allendale in the 1950s.

The slide-show runs about 38 minutes and features lots of archival photos, as well as aerial photos of the area in 1931, 1953, 1966, 1979, 1995, 2007 and 2017.

The sisters are Marie Breen and Patricia L. Cooper. I interviewed these two wonderful women and produced this video, using the audio and images from the Zoom talk with the sisters on Jan. 13.

(Had a technical glitch so had to reconstruct the talk. My apologies if some images aren't in great sync with the talk. I also had difficulty incorporating "Layers of Memories," Pat Cooper's wonderful tribute to the Celery Farm, so I am providing a link to the old YouTube video of her poem here.)

A big thank you to Marie and Pat, and to everyone who watched.
