Lee, Russell - Photograph - 103-Year-Old Acadian woman reaching for strings of garlic near Crowley, Louisiana, in the 1940s.
Russell Lee took this photograph c. 1945. An inscription on the photo reads, “At the time of this photograph, she was 103, her husband 93. They eke out a meagre existence by catching and selling, in season, crawfish. They live on rice (which they cultivate for their own use, hulling it in a crude mortar and pestle), crawfish and shrimp, with onions and garlic for seasoning. All cooking is done in the open fireplace, which also serves illumination purposes. Their two-room house is unscreened and only wooden shutters keep out some degree of the cold. They have no children; speak only French, and that sparingly.” ZoomifyView »
