Notation on back of 3x4-inch BW photograph reads: "Sorting potatoes in potato shed / Bouquet Canyon 1947."

The unidentified people in the photo would be related to Samuel Duran, because the image comes to us from the family photo collection of his great-granddaughter Jennifer Jones.

Duran (b. 2-19-1903, d. 1-19-1970) came to Newhall in the mid-1930s from a ranch in Oxnard to work for The Newhall Land and Farming Co. Samuel and his family lived in a company home on the Saugus-Ventura Road (now Magic Mountain Parkway and Highway 126), at what is now the southeast corner of Magic Mountain and Valencia. Duran stayed with Newhall Land until 1962-63 when he went to work at the Kings Ranch in Bouquet Canyon, then to Lancaster to farm alfalfa before returning to his native New Mexico.
