It's not Ada, but you've visited here

No, this is not an Ada photo, but it's a place you've probably visited. It's the Morning Star cider press on Road R between Bluffton and Ada.

Today you know it better as Suter's corn maze. Not much appears to have changed at the business in this color slide taken by Paul Diller of Bluffton in the early 1950s.

Looks like an early 1950s Ford, GMC truck, maybe a Chrysler and Studebaker in line for cider. (Photo from Jim Diller collection)
