Dr. McDiarmid is feeding his flock of several hundred chickens. Judging by the trees, the photo was taken around 1917. Eggs were sold by the agricultural enterprise in addition to fruit and berries, and – later – plants and cut flowers. Part of the chicken house was later converted to a flower-handling house.
