This photograph of the Wysocki Onion Storehouse was taken in 1932, nearly a quarter century after Antonin Wysocki had started his business. Wysocki came to the United States in 1889 and worked for some years as a farm laborer in South Deerfield, Massachusetts. The Deerfield area became famous for its onions, especially in the Polish-dominated areas around South Deerfield. Antonin Wysocki's warehouse was located on the southern edge of River Road, about a mile from South Deerfield and near the Connecticut River bridge. Rising in the back is North Sugarloaf Mountain.
