Big barns in Library of Congress photograph identified as Avalongs in Springettsbury Township

These barn photos are part of a recent picture release from Yale University of Library of Congress photos from the 1930s and 1940s. They were commissioned by the Farm Security Administration-Office of War Information. The photographs often lack detailed caption information, such as this one, which was labeled as a large dairy barn in York County, Pa. But this photo looks like Avalong barns in Springettsbury Township.
